Valentine’s Day may have passed, but LA native, urban electronic producer, and sometime vocalist Ryden’s mesmerizing anti-love song Murderer will keep you riveted to your seat, listening to the magnetic beats, sweeping strings and shining brass, and the artist’s powerful vocals.
Ryden does it all herself, from production to creative direction and vocals, and she infuses Murderer with an intensity and authenticity that is lacking in most of the electronic pop realm. Ryden explains, “I want to talk about real life, and I want you to feel something powerful.”
For Ryden, it’s a dramatic jump to center stage vocally, since she usually produces other artists’ material. The lyrical concept behind Murderer is drawn from her real life; from a time of heartache that she translates into a tale of self-realization and revenge. Ryden softens, but also accentuates, her words with electronic and orchestral sonics, bringing an ominous atmosphere and cinematic symphonics to her bleak to passionate exclamations.
Ryden comes from an unusual musical background where she has had classical training in piano and violin, but also has worked for years in the hip-hop field as a respected DJ and songwriter. She’s also stamped the fashion world with her designer role of high-end streetwear for the DopeMafia brand. The multi-talented artist shines in whatever facet she applies herself to – whether as a producer, designer, songwriter, or vocalist.
