Lauren Ruth Ward

Within the first few seconds of Lauren Ruth Ward’s “Dizzy,” one thing is apparent: Ward is a breath of fresh air. In today’s electronic-heavy world of mainstream music, Ward brings us emotional pop-jazz fusion songs featuring real instruments and her full, raspy voice. Like Mayer Hawthorne and Leon Bridges, Ward has both raw talent and borrows from the oldies–a mix of which results in her irreplicable, distinctive sound. Ward’s first EP, which is to be released this December, is filled with songs that feel more like states of mind–an episode of adrenaline rush, for instance, or fluttering pensiveness.
