Pure raw amazing talent is what has garnered Canada’s own Serena Ryder such great success and genuine accolades so early in her career. Now after a challenging year of heartache and heartbreak, she has pushed herself as a songwriter and performer to make a uniquely personal and very honest album entitled, is it o.k.
Known for her powerful vocal range, Ryder, who hails from the small town of Millbrook, Ontario, has logged some serious tour miles going across Canada multiple times, as well as the U.S. (including Bonnarroo, Lollapalooza, South by Southwest and Denver’s Mile High Music Festival), Australia and Europe. She has already earned a Canadian GOLD record, the 2008 JUNO Award for New Artist of the Year, a #1 holiday single for ‘Calling To Say’ and been part of Bravo! TV's ‘Live at the Rehearsal Hall’ series.
Armed with a riveting stage presence, powerful three-octave range and songs of intense passion, she invites the listener to observe her soul stripped bare.
