ZZ Ward with Yellow Red Sparks and Kaia Chesney, 9 PM Tuesday December 11th at Plush.
ZZ Ward grew up surrounded by the Blues. Her father wrote and sung Blues music and ZZ used to perform with him and his band when she was younger. As she got older she gained a new musical love, which was Hip-Hop. She started writing hooks and performing for local rappers and the rest as they say is history. She took her roots in Blues and love of Hip-Hop and blended the two genres to create her own unique sound.
With a strong emphasis on lyrical content, Yellow Red Sparks create music with a timeless feel and continues the tradition of providing an open and honest perspective to raw universal emotions that come with the everyday trials of life.
In 2006 Kaia Chesney released her first five song EP entitled Springtime. After this release, Kaia focused on her musical endeavors with bands Nymphette (former members of Blues) and four-piece Kaia and the Nazarenes, which was later renamed ilamir. Kaia is still currently song-writing and performing in ilamir, and just recorded her first full-length solo album. "Kaia Chesney makes delicately gorgeous indie pop." - Arizona Daily Star "Kaia has a rapturous vocal style that feels like enchanted air bouncing off of canyon walls, with a palpable (but almost deceptive) sweetness." - Tucson Weekly
