Wednesday, May 31st ZZ Ward brought her firebrand of hip-hop infused, streetsmart blues to a full house at Lincoln Hall. The 90-minute set drew mostly from her debut success, Til The Casket Drops, which featured the attention-grabbing single “Put The Gun Down.”
Drawing from her early influences of elder blues masters, she had forged a four-on-the-floor beat that blends contemporary music influences that create a powerful blues sound. A talented entertainer and vocalist, Ward commands her guitar like the best out there. Is it any wonder that she toured as Eric Clapton’s opening act in 2014? Add her unflinching harmonica playing, fans left her show drenched in a juke joint sweat, exhausted and more than satisfied.
