Bluesy pop singer-songwriter ZZ Ward is playing Marathon Music Works on Friday, September 4 to promote her upcoming sophomore record This Means War, and we have the details on the pre-sale that starts this morning just for you our loyal readers. If you caught her killer set at last year’s Bonnaroo, then you know there’s more to Ward than the old school pop niche she’s often categorized in.
She’s not only attractive and charismatic enough to function in that vintage-y pop role, but also plays guitar and harmonica and has one of those voices that will only get better with age, signaling the potential for a longer career than many of her pop star peers. Ward’s blend of blues, hip-hop, pop, and soul is reminiscent of singers like Joss Stone, Adele, and Amy Winehouse; women who have put their own unique modern twist on a vintage sound.
The pre-sale for tickets to the Love and War tour begins this morning at 10 a.m. and lasts until Thursday at 10 p.m., with the password “WAR”. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday May 29th. Click through to listen to the first single from This Means War, “Love 3X.”
