FEATURED ARTIST: (who Val's listening to)
“HARMONY…the order of the universe, the combination of the elements, people, relationships, self-defined identities, or even more simplistic, the merging of symbiotic notes that join together to make the music louder, bigger…” – SERENA RYDER
Serena Ryder has a knack for stringing together beautiful lyrics with perfectly honed melodies. Ryder recently released Harmony on November 27, 2012. The first single “Stompa”, featured in an episode of ABC television’s Grey’s Anatomy, quickly climbed the charts and became certified platinum in January 2013.
