Serena Ryder

Serena Ryder tours her compelling latest album, The Art of Falling Apart, which invites listeners to join her mental wellness journey through a driving pop sound and the full range of her powerful voice.

On The Art of Falling Apart, her eighth studio album and seventh JUNO Award, she helps us understand the importance of sitting with the uncomfortable moments and the wisdom in their messages. Over a driving pop sound bursting with irresistible rhythms, pulsing bass lines, and the full range of her powerful and expressive voice, she pulls listeners through her own winding, transformational journey, detailing despair, toxic relationships, and breakdowns alongside hope, joy, and big, big love.


Over the course of 40+ years of performing and recording, 54•40 has not only made their mark on the Canadian music industry, but the entire cultural landscape. Led by chief songwriter Neil Osborne, 54•40 has carved out a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances that carries through to this day. With decades of hit songs and more in the making, the secret to 54•40’s longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves.

A 54•40 concert experience gives an understanding of how their songs have touched, inspired, and changed people’s lives. For those who have followed the band from their humble beginnings in East Vancouver to younger fans that are just discovering the band’s originality, 54•40 shows are extraordinary affairs that bridge gaps between generations through a shared love of music.

54•40  is currently preparing for the release of their 2023 album West Coast Band which was recorded remotely during the thick of COVID-19 lockdowns. Having come through the hardship with a sense of unity, the album celebrates the common history they share as band members.
