Serena Ryder and Ryan Star Hitting The Road

Atlantic recording artist Serena Ryder is about to embark on her first US headline tour with a full band and labelmate Ryan Star.

Ryder made a stunning chart entrance last November with her full-length label debut, "is it o.k." The highly praised album – which includes the hit singles, "Little Bit of Red" and "All For Love" – premiered at #1 on Billboard's "Heatseekers Albums" chart, marking the week's top-selling album by a new or developing artist. "is it o.k.," has already received gold certification from the CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association) in Ryder's native Canada, where it has earned reams of critical acclaim as well as the 2009 Juno Award for "Adult Alternative Album of the Year."

In the US, "Little Bit of Red" proved a Top 10 sensation at Triple A radio, placing Ryder alongside Grammy Award-nominees Adele and Duffy as one of only three female artists to chart Top 10 at the format in the past year. A charismatic and tireless live performer, Ryder has spent much of the past year on the road with artists such as the Wallflowers, Howie Day and NEEDTOBREATHE. Following this tour she will join the Barenaked Ladies, on their upcoming US headline tour and appear on this summer's much anticipated 2010 Lilith Tour.

Ryan Star is an artist that you have most likely heard of before without knowing it. His songs have already been on countless TV spots including promos for American Idol ("Breathe"), as the theme song to Fox's hit show Lie To Me ("Brand New Day"), ESPN & HBO (" This Could Be The Year") as well as many others. Star had been on the nyc rock circuit for years before he quickly became a fan favorite on the tv show Rock Star:Supernova. Since the show Star has signed to Atlantic, recorded his debut album "11:59" -which will be released later this year and toured with American Idol David Cook, Collective Soul and Rob Thomas. His single "Breathe" is currently charting and is being added to Hot AC stations throughout the country.
