For Serena Ryder, music is medicine. It’s the thing that soothes any ailment, and it’s the reason to keep going, even when times get tough. Ryder has always been compelled to write songs, both because she loves creating music and because it heals her, inside and out. The Canadian singer-songwriter, who is currently based between Toronto and Los Angeles, started playing guitar and penning songs as a teenager. She’s released several albums, including her successful 2012 record Harmony, and Utopia in May 2017 which features the sassy soul-pop romp and lead single “Got Your Number”.
