{INTERVIEW} zz ward

We're so excited to share our latest interview with bad-ass songstress ZZ Ward. For this interview, we teamed up with the lovely ladies over at Quaterlette to get her thoughts on not just music, but also what it's like to be a twentysomething female in the music industry.

AND as a special treat to you loyal TIOJ readers, we wanted to share one of ZZ's comments that we've shared just for you!

One thing we really like about your music is that you’ve collaborated with people outside of the regular pop/singer-songwriter genre. We really like your mixtape Eleven Roses features your interpretations of some modern hip hop songs. Can you tell us about the inspiration behind making that mixtape?

It was a way to get away from what I was writing at the time. I was writing the record and I started, just when I was listening to music, writing over hip hop beats that I heard. The first one I wrote was over “Yonkers” by Tyler the Creator -- and I wrote a song called “Better Off Dead.” After that, I just kind of got into it and kept doing it. I decided to put it out, with no expectation of what people would think.

Rock out to ZZ's entire Eleven Roses mixtape here!
