2013 | Adult Alternative Album of the Year | Serena Ryder | | The JUNO Awards

Serena Ryder has made her most personal and ambitious album yet, Harmony– robust, passionate, optimistic, adventurous, haunting and addictive. Already the recipient of three JUNO Awards and two GOLD Albums, Serena chose with this record to experiment more freely with the different musical parts of herself that make up the whole. Serena ended up working with two different producers on this album - Jerrod Bettis (Gavin Degraw) and Jon Levine (Nelly Furtado); and the album was mixed by Joe Zook (Katy Perry). Serena, Jerrod and Jon even play most of the instruments on Harmony, which features hit singles “What I Wouldn’t Do” and “Stompa.” With her last album she had some great U.S. success including a Top 10 single and rave reviews in magazines such as Paste, Oprah, Elle and People. Serena counts among her many fans: Ray LaMontagne, Kevin Drew, Michael Ondaatje and Melissa Etheridge, who she opened the Genie Awards with in 2011 and has recorded and toured with.
