NYFW is over and we got right to work shooting for Bands In Town, The super talented and lovely ZZ Ward charmed a full packed house at Irving Plaza, NYC in support of her new album, This Means War.
Her genre bending music seamlessly melded her powerful vocals with rock, R & B and Hip hop influences. ZZ Ward is the sexiest harmonica player I have ever photographed (or ever seen really) and she played guitar, piano all in heels! She even surprised the crowd by performing her last encore song next to her fans in the middle of the crowd.
Like so many songwriters past and present, ZZ Ward addresses themes of love and heartbreak but with a ferociousness not often seen. Songs like "Move it like you stole it" has her demanding her love to urgently make some moves on her and "Til the casket drops" is how long she will love them.
But it was the "Put the gun down" featuring the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Freddie Gibbs where she states, "You have to fight for great love sometimes."
