Serena Ryder Announces U.S. Summer Tour
Award-winning Atlantic recording artist Serena Ryder has announced a U.S. summer tour run, kicking off June 10th in Portland, ME. Ryder recently released her new single, "Famous (feat. Simon Ward of The Strumbellas)," produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Cobb and complimented today by a newly released Lash Remix. The single impacted Triple A radio outlets this past week, while it's video companion was praised by Refinery29 as "a genuine look at what fame means in the modern world and how social media has changed our approach to success."
"Famous" follows last year's EP, "ELECTRIC LOVE," Ryder's first new release since 2012's fifth studio album, "HARMONY." That collection earned the Toronto-based singer/songwriter her greatest popular and critical success to date, including platinum sales certification from Music Canada, the 2013 Juno Award for "Adult Alternative Album of the Year," and an additional string of top Juno nods including "Album of the Year." "HARMONY" was highlighted by the #1 hit single, "Stompa," which spent eight consecutive weeks topping Triple A radio airplay charts here in the Lower 48 upon its 2013 release. A top 10 smash in Ryder's home country, "Stompa" earned 4x platinum certification from Music Canada and firmly established the talented tunesmith. Named "Artist of the Year" and "Songwriter of the Year" at the 2014 Juno Awards, Ryder followed "Stompa" with yet another top 10, 2x platinum certified crossover hit single, "What I Wouldn't Do."
Ryder's songs have also been featured in and performed on a truly remarkable number of film, TV, and commercial projects spanning VEEP, Grey's Anatomy, American Idol, The Voice, The Tonight Show, Drop Dead Diva, Mob Wives, Suits, and advertising campaigns from Ford, Cadillac, and many others. Ryder has also proven herself to be a hard-traveling troubadour, with countless headline tours both in her native Canada and around the globe. She has shared stages with a variety of diverse artists including Kayne West, HAIM, Pitbull, Melissa Etheridge, OneRepublic, Tegan & Sara, and Sara Bareilles.
