Canada is known for a few things: Political apathy, comedic actors, being a nation of diplomacy and our richness of natural resources. One of our most treasured resources seems to be a wealth of incredibly talented female solo artists like the lovely Serena Ryder. An old soul with a voice as rich as honey and so full of emotion - it's easy to forget that Serena is only in her mid twenties. Her last release 'If Your Memory Serves You Well' is an ode to Canadian Singer songwriters of the past. Her renditions show her skillful twist on classics - making them her own while still honouring the voice of the songwriters who'd crafted them - many of them before she was born. Serena is currently on tour to promote her upcoming release and to those privy of my Facebook status updates... YES, I did fail to secure tickets to her November 16th show and NO, I am not happy about it ...but remain optimistic.
Not many folks called Einstein can or would willingly zip on an Evil Knievil style jumpsuit. Albert certainly couldn't carry one off... he couldn't have even begun to shove that hair under his crash helmet!
