ZZ Ward’s debut album, Til The Casket Drops, opens up with the project’s tone-setting title track and proceeds to draw listeners in further and further with each passing song. Behind her powerful, yet charming voice, the Oregon native impresses in a variety of ways through 13 consecutive tracks – from the emotionally charged songs such as”Last Love Song” to the anthem-like offerings like “Put The Gun Down”. And while Ms. Ward makes it known she’s fully capable of handling the album’s workload singlehandedly, features from Kendrick Lamar, Freddie Gibbs and The O’My’s add an extra element of originality and range that we can’t help but applaud.
