Bio

Already the recipient of three JUNO Awards and two GOLD Albums, Serena Ryder is about to unveil her most personal and ambitious album yet. The result is HARMONY – robust, passionate, optimistic, adventurous, haunting and addictive - which comes out on November 13, 2012 on Serenader Source/EMI Music.

Serena ended up working with two different producers on this album - Emmy/Grammy nominated producer/songwriter/musician Jerrod Bettis (Adele, Gavin Degraw, Better Than Ezra) and producer/songwriter/musician Jon Levine (K’naan, Nelly Furtado). Serena, Jerrod and Jon even play most of the instruments on the album. By recording much of HARMONY at her own home studio The Cottage, the essence of the songs were able to properly flourish. They also recorded at Guest House Studios in Los Angeles and Synagogue in Hollywood, before the album was mixed by Joe Zook (Modest Mouse, Katy Perry).

First single “Stompa” had its world premiere on CBC Radio Q this morning and is now available for streaming on CBC Music http://music.cbc.ca/#/blogs/2012/9/Stream-Serena-Ryders-new-song-Stompa. CBC Radio 2 will also be featuring the song throughout the day before it goes to Modern Rock Radio on Tuesday. “Stompa,” written by Serena and Jerrod and produced by Jerrod, will be available for purchase digitally on October 9.

“HARMONY is my journey...my past, my present, my future and all the ugly and beautiful things that I've had the pleasure of experiencing so far in my short life here,” shares Serena. “I've chosen with this record to experiment more freely with the different parts of me that make up the whole.”
