Toronto-based vocal powerhouse Serena Ryder is a platinum-selling artist adored by fans, peers and critics alike, in part due to her raw and earnest songwriting, and beautifully electric live performances. She has received numerous accolades, including six prestigious JUNO Awards, a MuchMusic Video Award for Best Rock Video for “Stompa”, and a Canadian Screen Award for Achievement in Music–Original Song. Her upcoming album, The Art of Falling Apart, chronicles Serena’s journey from mental illness to wellness. The album was written and recorded over 10 days, and the track listing allows the listener to follow Serena’s creative process in a truly linear sense. Each song was recorded the day it was written, featuring raw, unprocessed vocals. The album is one piece of a greater movement for Serena as a leader in mental health and wellness. A longtime advocate, Serena has worked with a variety of health and wellness initiatives, including Bell Let’s Talk, WE Day, Unison Benevolent Fund, and in 2018 won theMargaret Trudeau Mental Health Advocacy Award. She has presented her keynote speech (also named The Art of Falling Apart) to audiences across Canada, and will soon release a shortened animated version to grow its impact around the world. Recently, she launched The Art of Wellness—a free mindfulness program for artists and creatives. Combined with the album rollout, these pieces will help position Serena as a leader in both music and mental health.
