Serena Ryder

"Unique vocals and songwriting skills make her a force to be reckoned with"
Serena Ryder is a Canadian singer/songwriter who is based in Peterborough, Ontario. She performed in many venues around Ontario from the age of 18, including being showcased at the CBC Women’s Blues Review 2002 at the Music Hall, Danforth Avenue, Ontario at 19. She has a “fearless” approach to performing. Her voice is mature beyond her years, with tremor and vivacity of a seasoned blues singer. Promotional CDs (‘A Day at the Studio’ and others) were available at some of her early performances and since then she has released three albums. In 2004 she released her debut album “Unlikely Emergency”, which included the song “Just Another Day” which gained signifigant airplay on many canadian radio stations. The album was released with the help of Hawksley Workman.In 2007, she released a album of cover songs “If Your Memory Serves You Well”. In 2008, she followed that up with “Is It O.K.”, mixing original work with a reprise of “Weak in the Knees”. She has been nominated for two Juno Awards for 2009 - ‘Artist of the Year’ and ‘Adult Alternative Album of the Year’ for “Is it O.K.”.
