      Serena Ryder


      Lee DeWyze

      With 60 songs written and ready to go, Serena Ryder had some tough choices to make when starting work on her new album. She made the toughest of all: She threw them out. Every one of them. A full year’s hard work into the trash. Best thing, the Juno Award-winning artist says, she’s ever done.

      Ryder has earned grass-roots acclaim as a guitar-wielding singer-songwriter, an approach at the core of the five dozen songs she had on hand. Starting fresh allowed her the freedom to see that she’d only been showing one side of her talents and passions. She put down the guitar and wrote, first and foremost, for her voice and for her full musical personality. The result is Harmony, an album of wide range and deep vision, driven by a fierce love — and matching talent — for music of soulful connections, for the voice as the supreme instrument, for “pop” values at their most grounded and most reaching.

      Working with producers/collaborators Jerrod Bettis (Gavin Degraw, Better Than Ezra) and Jon Levine (K’naan, Nelly Furtado) in Hollywood and at her Toronto home studio, the rush of creativity was remarkable both for the results, and its ease.

      “This was one of the easiest and fun records I’ve ever made,” she says. “Really, really effortless. We wrote and recorded all of the songs in a couple of weeks.”
