ZZ Ward has roots in rural Oregon, but her accomplishments have led her far beyond that. She burst onto the scene in early 2012 with an eclectic mixtape, Eleven Roses, setting the tone for her unique blues-meets-hip-hop artistry and the reaction was palpable. ZZ’s debut album, Til The Casket Drops, featuring guests Kendrick Lamar, Fitz of Fitz and the Tantrums, and Freddie Gibbs, further solidified her musical artistry and songwriting prowess.
Live ZZ’s smoky vocals and deliberate, varied arrangements make her one not to miss. Last year, she toured with Fitz and the Tantrums, Grace Potter, Gary Clark, Jr. and Allen Stone and this year launched multiple near sell-out U.S. headline tours.
Appearances on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, , VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, Good Morning America, The View and Last Call with Carson Daly have kept her in the public eye, while her current single, “365 Days” is quickly rising at multiple radio formats. Ward’s songs have also been featured on Nashville, The Voice, Pretty Little Liars, The Good Wife, The Client List, Awkward, Mob Wives and prominently in the feature film We’re The Millers.
“Sometimes I look at the world in a darker way,” says Marc Scibilia, “but when I hear a melody, when a lyric comes to me, I feel like things are going to be OK.”
While the sounds and styles of the eleven songs on Scibilia’s debut album, Out of Style, span a broad spectrum—from singer-‐songwriter narratives to dance beats, drawing on folk, pop, and rock along the way—this hard-‐fought but positive spirit never wavers. Produced by critically acclaimed artist and hitmaker Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), and one of the first releases on the new IRS Nashville imprint of Capitol Records, Scibilia’s LP marks the arrival of a major new talent.
“Marc came out on the road with me and in five minutes, I fell in love with him,” says Walker. “I’m a sucker for someone who can write a song with heart and emotion and meaning, but still have the decency to put a pop hook in it and make it relatable. You just want him to win, he deserves it—he’s just a good soul.”
