Supercrawl Presents Serena Ryder Fri Nov 19

Supercrawl Presents
SERENA RYDER

Friday, November 19, 2021 | 7pm show
Livestream Tickets: $19.99 (+SC) adv. • All-Ages

AVAILABLE NOW VIA EVENTBRITE

NEW DATE – TICKETS FOR ORIGINAL DATE REMAIN VALID

Join us as Serena Ryder discusses her mental wellness journey that led to the creation of her latest recording The Art of Falling Apart and performs a few select pieces from the album and some of her hits.

Autographed copies of Serena’s new album, on CD and vinyl LP, are available as special livestream add-ons to this livestream ticket.

The Toronto-based vocal powerhouse 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 JUNO Awards, a MuchMusic Video Award for Best Rock Video for “Stompa”, and a Canadian Screen Award for Achievement in Music–Original Song.

Serena’s upcoming album, The Art of Falling Apart, chronicles her 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 the Margaret 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.

Concert will be available for ticket holders to view on demand for 48 hours post-show.

Matt Holubowski‘s career has really taken off since the 2014 release of Old Man, a collection of folk songs inspired by his many trips and experiences around the world. The watershed moment would be the release of Solitudes (Audiogram) two years later. Produced by Connor Seidel, just as the previous and upcoming ones, the album introduced him to a wide audience who discovered his mercurial voice and captivating songs. Matt earned a Gold record for Solitudes as well as two ADISQ nominations. The Solitudes tour that followed the album’s release had him criss-crossing Canada, the United States and Europe, to perform nearly 200 concerts. In the Spring of 2018, he signed with the German label Motor Musik and the French label Yokanta, distributing Solitudes in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium. Soon after, he participated in the Printemps de Bourges, toured Europe as support for Ben Folds, and performed in London’s Meltdown Festival at the invitation of The Cure’s Robert Smith. Returning to North America, Matt played summer dates at Bonnaroo, the Festival d’été de Québec, the Regina, Ottawa and Winnipeg folk festivals, and Osheaga, then a fall tour of the eastern US. In early 2019, Matt opened for singer-songwriter Dan Mangan in eastern Canada, a last waltz before retreating to the woods in Banff, Alberta, to write the songs for his new album, Weird Ones (released Feb 21, 2020). Slowly moving away from folk, he explores new sounds and fleshes out his songs’ arrangements in collaboration with his musicians, guitarist Simon Angell, bassist Marc-André Landry, drummer Stéphane Bergeron and cellist/keyboardist Marianne Houle.

A solitary and contemplative soul, Elliot Maginot enjoys exploring new sounds, refining textures, handling words and expanding his orchestrations. In 2013, following the release of his debut EP, Elliot carved out a place for himself on the Montreal music scene as an independent artist, which allowed him to perform throughout Quebec and to be noticed by the Indica record label which offered him his first record contract. His debut, Young / Old / Everything.In.Between, hovers between pop and folk rock left field. The album won him two nominations at the Gala GAMIQ, earned radio rotation at CHOM and CBC music and opened the door to perform in several renowned festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival., the Festival d’été de Québec, Le Festi-Voix de Trois-Rivières, Canadian Music Week (Toronto) and Aurores Montréal (Paris). After a 10-country tour, Maginot signed with Audiogram to launch sophomore album Comrades in November 2018. Co-produced with Connor Seidel (Matt Holubowski, Charlotte Cardin), this opus was decidedly more pop, but also more sophisticated and complex in its arrangements with sounds reminiscent of Phil Collins, The War On Drugs and Peter Gabriel. The record received unanimous critical acclaim and produced a chart single in ” Common Place”. In May 2021, Maginot returns with Easy Morning, an essentially acoustic album co-produced with Connor Seidel that combines the soft string arrangement, with warm brass and West African influences.
