Six-time Juno Award winner, Serena Ryder will play the Chrysler Theatre on Sunday, July 22nd, 2018.
The Multi-Platinum Canadian singer-songwriter, who is currently based between Toronto and the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Silverlake, started playing guitar and penning songs as a young girl. By the age of eight, Ryder was performing on stages in her hometown and by 16, she cut her first record for a major label. Before she was 25, she had a Gold Certified album with 2006’s If Your Memory Serves You Well and the Gold single, “Weak In The Knees”. Over the course of her career, she has released several albums including her Double-Platinum 2012 record Harmony and last year’s hit record, Utopia which debuted at #1.
Utopia’s sassy soul-pop romp and lead single “Got Your Number”, hatched spontaneously during an exploratory early writing session that found Ryder once again casting aside her guitar and “just goofing around on the drums, just kind of rapping and rhyming and singing weird jazzy stuff” in search of new musical avenues to explore, is but a tantalizing taste of the surprises Serena Ryder has to offer on her new record.
The six-time Juno Award winner and multiple SOCAN No.1 Award recipient has had her songs placed in over 50 TV shows and commercials, including Grey’s Anatomy, VEEP and Suits. Her single “Stompa” is 4x Platinum in Canada and she’s sold over one million singles from her previous releases. “Stompa” also hit No. 1 at AAA radio in the U.S. for eight weeks (the most weeks at No. 1 since Adele) and landed in the Top 10 at Alternative radio, Hot AC and AC. Ryder has shared the stage with OneRepublic, Kanye West, Sara Bareilles, HAIM, Pitbull and Melissa Ethridge, and has proved herself as a strong live performer with an avid fanbase.
