Music soothes the savage beat or something like that. Music isn’t a reflex in my life. I don’t naturally turn on music at home, office or in the car. I appreciate music, I admire musicians, I support the art of music, it just isn’t embedded like so many people I know.

I heard Serena Ryder in concert at the Grande in Calgary in 2007 and again at the Knox in 2013. I am attracted to the amazing voice and her fun loving stage personality. Listen to What I Wouldn’t Do and Baby Come Back for a taste of this award winning Canadian artist.

They have a pretty good sampler on EVOC Media Player.
