Indie Spotlight: Serena Ryder

Posted in News on May 11, 2010

Serena Ryder has already left an indelible impression in Canada, where her album If Your Memory Serves You Well has been certified Gold and contributed to her winning the 2008 Juno Award for Best New Artist. Now ready for U.S. domination, Ryder released is it o.k., on which Ryder paints a self-portrait that’s bitter in betrayal in “Sweeping the Ashes,” furious and yet not without affection in the hard-hitting “Little Bit of Red,” teasingly romantic on “Brand New Love,” struggling to understand another’s pain on “Hiding Place,” even careening through cascades of contradictory emotion, almost from one word to the next, on “All for Love.”
