Serena RyderThe 2019 Christmas Kisses Tour
Tuesday, December 10 - 8:00pm
Serena Ryder does what she does naturally and effortlessly, and has done what she does naturally and effortlessly since she was a young girl. This girl was performing by the age of eight, cut her first record at 16 and could boast of being a major-label artist with a gold-selling album, 2006's If Your Memory Serves You Well and a gold-selling single, the lingeringly knee-weakening "Weak in the Knees," all before she'd even turned 25. And yet it took a debilitating bout with depression and artistic self-doubt brought on by her premature pigeonholing as just another "sensitive Canadian folk chick with an acoustic guitar" for her to finally let it all come out truly naturally and effortlessly on Harmony, the album where Ryder found her voice and discovered that the best formula for her success is...no formula at all.
You can still hear the results of the "letting go" that allowed Harmony – a genre-oblivious sleeper hit that went on to notch platinum sales in Ryder's native Canada – to happen living and breathing on the radio to this day, since that record's signature single, "Stompa" (triple-platinum and counting north of the 49th parallel), and its anthemic follow-up, "What I Wouldn't Do," haven't left the airwaves since.
