Serena Ryder

This event is on September 5, 2014 8:30 pm

Critically acclaimed chart-topper, Serena Ryder has earned her first career Platinum Certification for her November 2012 release, Harmony (Serenadar Source / Universal Music Canada). The album’s incredible success is testament to the meteoric rise of her first two singles – “Stompa” & “What I Wouldn’t Do” on the SoundScan and radio charts.

In just a few short months, Harmony shot to Gold Certification (Feb 2013) and five months later, sales had doubled and Ryder celebrated her first ever Platinum album. Produced by Emmy/Grammy nominated producer / songwriter / musician Jerrod Bettis (Gavin Degraw, Better Than Ezra) and producer / songwriter / musician Jon Levine (K’naan, Nelly Furtado), Harmony is poised to continue to break new ground in 2013 and beyond.

Ryder is an artist adored by fans, peers and critics alike which is due mainly in part to her immense raw and earnest songwriting talent and beautifully electric live performances. Over the years, she has received numerous accolades including four prestigious Juno Awards that include: 2008 New Artist of The Year, 2009 Adult Alternative Album of The Year (Is It O.K.), 2010 Video of The Year (“Little Bit of Red“) and 2013 Adult Alternative Album of The Year. In her MuchMusic Video Award debut, Ryder was nominated for three awards, took home the trophy for Rock / Alternative Video of The Year and went on to perform a stellar live medley of her two hits, “What I Wouldn’t Do” & “Stompa”. She has also enjoyed success prior to the current chart-smashing Harmony with her two previous albums, If Your Memory Serves You Well (2007) and Is it O.K. (2009) achieving Gold selling status. In 2012, her single “Weak In The Knees” also achieved Gold Certification.
