ZZ Ward performing “Love X3″ and “Put the Gun Down”

zz-wardOn the 17th of July, Ms. ZZ Ward paid a visit to the Lightning 100 studio with guitarist, Eric Walls, and her adorable sidekick, Muddy Waters by her side. The songstress and guitarist performed two songs for us live on air after having Muddy Waters escorted from the room, as the dog enjoys howling along while Ward sings. Before performing stripped down versions of her hit song “Put the Gun Down” and new single “Love 3x”, Ward told us a bit about her musical upbringing.

“I started out in Glide, Oregon, and played in my dad’s blues band when I was twelve until I started writing my own stuff,” said Ward. “I moved to LA eventually.”
