Exposed: 10 More Female Guitarists You Should Know, Part 4

ZZ Ward

I know this column is about guitarists, but ZZ Ward’s voice is what will win you over. It just so happens she’s pretty good at guitar, too. Her father, who wrote and sang in blues bands, influenced Ward at an early age. She lists Etta James and Big Mama Thornton as two major role models. Her hip-hop background developed at a later age when she started writing and performing with local rappers in Eugene, Oregon.

Her voice is genuinely captivating. Ward released an EP earlier this year, titled Criminal. Her song “Til The Casket Drops” was recently used in a promo for ABC Family’s show Pretty Little Liars. You can try to catch her at a show as she is currently on tour in the US. Here’s a video of a live performance of “Til The Casket Drops.”
