Austin Ward is a singer-songwriter, and guitarist from Los Angeles, CA. Raised between the sun-kissed jungle-gym of LA, and the off-the-map charm of Meridian, Mississippi, where his familial roots lay,  Ward draws upon his eclectic upbringing to inform his sound. The writing is minimalist, but pointed, telling an emotive story with choice words. He sings of heartbreak and the tug-of-war nature of love, driven by intricate layered guitar parts, velvety mid-range and falsetto vocal performances, and anthemic tone. Ward's sound is an amalgamation of styles and influences that span across time - he invites listeners to journey with him as he almost theatrically confronts a three-part dynamic cast of characters: love, sex, and power. What's special about Pheromone is that this is the music Ward has always wanted you to hear. These are the songs that have been marinating in his bedroom, the songs that have chronicled the love and loss in his life, the songs that achieve the vision of his Id and ego, the songs that give you everything he has.
