Baltimore bred, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter, Lauren Ruth Ward, started 2018 on the front foot, releasing her debut album Well, Hell.
The latest track lifted from the album is ‘Sheet Stain’ and we find Lauren Ruth Ward in fine but a little rowdy and loud, form. It is a swaggering slice of americana soul, with its loose swing, stomp and jangly guitar hooks. The rolling and rumbling and rowdy combination provide the energy and propulsion, while Ward’s smokey vocal, casual yet compelling, is given space to breathe. With its rowdy aggressive tones, swing and swagger, ‘Sheet Stain’ makes for a brilliant, catchy and compelling song.
