Longtime Baeble fans might remember that four years back, we introduced you
to upstart blues powerhouse ZZ Ward
, who stunned us with her brand of Delta Blues that's somehow untouched by time. Fast-forward one album and a whole lotta touring later (and a change of location on our end), Ward is back at Baeble HQ to bless us once again with her uncanny knack for dusty blues and folk. This time around, Ward is less than a month away from releasing her second album The Storm
, which promises another round of the rugged, genuine blues-rock we all came to know and love from her first one. We're frankly pretty damn excited for the new album, so when the opportunity arose to have her back for another session, we simply couldn't pass up the opportunity.
Just like in her first session, Ward knows how to bring the blues in full force, thanks to grooving guitar rhythms and her signature electrifying vocals. Just like some of the best old blues records from the 50s, Ward's music offers massively raw power and untethered emotion, so it's a huge bonus music like this is still being made in 2017. We were so happy to have ZZ Ward rocking out in the studio again, and we're even happier to share here exclusive session with the world. Watch her full performance right here, and look out for The Storm
, out June 30. She also has an upcoming NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge, you can find tickets here
