Two years ago, Ward quit his desk job in NYC, moved to LA and started a band. Since then, the group (Chris Gongora, Mauricio Munguia, Ryan Dietzenbach, and Ward) have grown a fanbase of tens of thousands online, released over 20 singles and videos, and played their high-energy post-punk live set throughout Southern California and Mexico. In 2019, Ward has already played or booked over 30 shows, including Echo Park Rising (LA), Mira Mesa Festival (San Diego) and set to headline the LIFA Festival this October along with a 2nd tour in Mexico, where Ward sold out a 150-person show in Mexico City last November. In 2018, Ward's song "Crush" was recognized by Los Angeles-based Buzzbands as one of the top 100 songs of the year. To date, his releases and videos have been streamed over 200k times, and earned praise from online music blogs such as Groundsounds, Line of Best Fit, Atwood Magazine, Buzzbands, Imperfect Fifth, Northern Transmissions and more.
