ZZ WARD was born in Pennsylvania and raised in Oregon, in a small town called Roseburg. She grew up listening to her Dad write and sing the blues and started performing with him in his blues bands when she was a kid. She fell in love with the sincerity of Etta, the soul of Muddy and the power of Big Mama. When she got older she started writing hooks for and performing with local rappers from Eugene. She fell in love with hip-hop, with it's authenticity. Now she's married to em both. DIRTY SHINE!

Presented In Conjunction With Landshark Entertainment

The story behind the band Grizfolk unfolds like a richly episodic Beat novel: it's a collection of vignettes that give way to one another with ease; their songs like chapters in a traveler's cherished diary, suspended in time and space above an aural landscape of blue-collar romanticism and electro-inflected folk-rock.

Their songs speak of dusty deserts and the vagabonds that inhabit them, mixing America’s country music heritage with that of an electro-pop persuasion: It's where folklore meets four-on-the-floor; where tumbleweeds meet turntables. Songs that sound both futurist and revivalist at once; fashioned from a casually-indefinable collage of synth-pop squelches, junkyard percussion, undeniably catchy hooks and boot-stomping guitar lines.
