UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Confession: I’m a huge Serena Ryder fan. So I was particularly excited to have been one of the lucky guests at a live sneak preview of her new album, Harmony (EMI Music Canada), held earlier this week at a Toronto club. [caption id="attachment_14222" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Harmony will be released by EMI Music Canada[/caption] As much as I’ve learned about Serena and her music over the years, I discovered that there was more to know about the Millbrook, Ont., native. Here are three things I learned about Serena at her show: 1. She likes the comforts of home. “I made this record in my garage,” Serena told the crowd early on. Much of the new album was recorded in her home studio, The Cottage. 2. She possesses some mad percussion skills. The house was effectively brought down during the new song “Baby Come Back." 3. Even Juno Award–winning performers get a little nervous debuting new music for an audience. After performing her 2009 single “All for Love,” Serena confessed to worrying so much about remembering the lyrics to her new songs that she may have mixed up the verses of this fan favourite.
