Racking up over 10 million plays on Youtube already, Ryder has also made incredible impressions on Spotify, with her anthemic second single “Ruins” charting at #10 on the Spotify’s US Viral Charts and #30 on the Spotify Global Chart. No stranger to Hype Machine’s Top Ten, all of Ryder’s singles have risen to the top of the chart (the most recent “Ruins” BKAYE & Ben Maxwell Remix resting at the #2 spot). Summing up over 5 million streams on listening platforms, with ‘Pretty Little Gangster’ reaching over 1.1 million plays on Spotify, Ryder has also received previous support from major YouTube channels Mr Suicide Sheep and Mr Revillz. Deep Chills’ remix of “Fade Away” has surpassed 1 million plays on Soundcloud, and the BKAYE & Ben Maxwell Remix of “Ruins” is fast approaching the same figure.
‘Nirvana’ was produced by Max Farrar and Phil Shaouy and co-written by Trey Campbell, who has also written with Alison Wonderland and Florrie. Ryder is currently working with producers Dave Sitek of the band TV on the Radio, (Miguel, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Tim Anderson, (Twenty One Pilots, Halsey), Devrim Karaoglu (Lana Del Rey, Miley Cyrus) and collaborating with internet-buzz royalty, Recording artist Pell.
Hailing from NY, Ryder was somewhat of a child prodigy, starting to sing at the age of 3. By 13, she began her writing and recording career when she laid down her first original song in a cousin’s studio. Ryder continued writing prolifically over the next few years of her teens, working with writer/producers like Dave Tozer, Angela Hunte, Claude Kelly, Frankie Storm and Jeremy Skaller. Thereafter, attending NYU with other buzzing classmates like Gallant and RL Grime.
Ryder is considered a truly modern songstress of the new school music generation, having quickly risen above the noise with a star power and vocal ability reminiscent of divas like Bjork, Florence and Sia and demonstrating the reckless songwriting spirit of a young M.I.A. The current Ryder sound is a mixture of slow, floating melodies and soulful yet left-of-center and unapologetic lyrics; ear candy packed with endless introspection. Her quirky, eclectic style and unconventional voice have gained her a massive and dedicated following and recognition in a short time. With only a few releases out the gate, her forthcoming work is highly anticipated and hotly tipped for future endeavours.
The high-pitched opening vocals of ‘Nirvana’ set the stage for a slow, grooving and richly nuanced future pop track. Ryder’s obviously organic vocal talent is explored deeply, and progressively thick reverb creates a swirling, misty atmosphere for the persuasively well chosen selection of synth sounds. Simple, unobtrusive melody sits at the right balance of catchiness and originality, and the metaphorical subject matter of the lyrics reflect the workings of a soul exploring the deeper meaning of the music.
On ‘Nirvana’, Ryder says, “The release is exciting for me because it feels like a door opening to more new things you will hear from me. I’ve grown a lot in the last year as an artist and creator; I can’t wait to share that. I grew up around classical music and used to perform in choirs as a young kid, where I’d sing classical choral arrangements and folk music as well as a brief stint in opera. The hauntingly beautiful melodies and harmonic layers from those genres are inspiring motifs I try to constantly incorporate in my music wherever I can. ‘Nirvana’ to me is a blend of classical melodic moments with contemporary pop music.”
