Scooter Ward (born Ronald Ward Jr. on May 7, 1970) is an American musician. He is the founding member and lead singer of the Jacksonville, Florida hard rock band, Cold, which disbanded on November 17, 2006, and has recently reformed in 2009 for recording a new album which is expected to be released in April 2010.



In 1986, Ward formed the band Grundig along with several other students; Sam McCandless, Jeremy Marshall, and Matt Loughran at Fletcher High School in Neptune Beach, Florida. The band played their first gig in 1990 at a club called the Spray. In 1992, the band released an 8 song EP called "Into Everything" and moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Three and a half years later in 1995, Grundig broke up and Ward moved back to Jacksonville, where he, McCandless, Kelly Hayes, and Pat Lally formed the band Diablo. Diablo would only last about 3 months. At the end of that three month period Grundig reformed under the name Cold and signed a 6 album record deal with A&M Records. Ward would remain in Cold until February 2006 when, after several line-up changes and battles with record labels, the band decided to break up. Scooter Ward and McCandless promptly began working on their new project The Witch, which McCandless has since left. The project has been renamed twice, When November Falls and now The Killer and The Star. The debut album was released in July 2009. In early 2009, Cold reformed for a reunion tour. They have finished recording a brand new album, which is tentatively titled Epic and is scheduled for a June 2010 release.

Scooter has two daughters, Carmen and Raven.
