LAUREN RUTH WARD

LAUREN RUTH WARD is single-handedly revitalizing the image of powerful women in rock’n’roll by unleashing a spree of viral hit singles and headlining a sold-out U.S. concert tour. With the  impact of “Mindseye” – the seductive, guitar-laced title track of her wildly anticipated EP of the same name – Ward is poised for brilliant new heights.
 
Of the track, Ward says, “‘Mindseye” is about being in a relationship and trying to figure out what  parts are real and what parts are disillusionment for you and for the other person. It’s a question that  is always there, especially since we’re always changing. It can be hard to be honest with yourself  and with a person you love because you don’t always know if you’re crazy or sane. It’s the paranoid  part of being in love.”
 
“Mindseye” is the latest salvo in a year that has seen the Baltimore-bred/L.A. based artist go from strength to strength, starting with viral smash “Messiah,” which currently has over 42k streams on Spotify. The bluesy rock anthem is accompanied by a smouldering performance video lensed by filmmaker Wes O’Connor.
Ward has further revealed her enigmatic screen presence in the lush, emotionally charged short film supporting the cathartic single “Suburban Ego.” Teamed with acclaimed indie director Savannah Sivert, Ward reveals the depth and charisma of a movie star.
The singles building to the release of Mindseye have proven to be formidable fuel for Ward’s recent sold-out stateside concert trek that transcended the traditional artist/audience experience. “My shows have always been an interactive experience,” the artist says. “There’s a bond and a trust between us that exists and allows for a high degree of spontaneity.” 
 
In addition to an extensive tour of Europe during the first quarter of 2023, Ward is preparing for a special gig at L.A.’s red-hot Sun Rose on Sunset club to celebrate the release of Mindseye on Nov. 17th. These dates come on the heels of a sterling performance during the recent Celebrating David Bowie show in Los Angeles, as well as during this summer’s L.A. Pride 2022. 
 
Ward has also recently teamed up with internationally renowned comedian/writer/performer Mae Martin for a beautiful, lo-fi rendition of Elliott Smith’s evergreen “Twilight.” The track, which is available via SoundCloud, was recorded to raise awareness of issues surrounding mental heath and suicide prevention.
