Helen Ryder Trio
HELEN RYDER With that rare ability to transform a lyric into something compelling and utterly personal Helen Ryder is delighted to perform her album and an eclectic mix of favourite songs with Bruce Haymes (Archie Roach) on keyboards and Jeff Burstin (Vika and Linda) in the intimate setting of Open Studio. In 2015 Helen released her debut single Lady Bird, a duet featuring Spencer P. Jones, followed by Someday Love – eleven tracks of beautifully crafted country and soul atmospheric pop. Receiving airplay nationally on ABC Radio, RRR and PBS FM and featured in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Helen released a second single from the album in 2016 – True Love Travels On A Gravel Road featuring Kevin Bennett. In late 2017 Helen released a new single and video Birds, beautifully recorded with pedal steel and double bass, once again receiving airplay nationally. Helen has also performed at the ARIA Awards with The Whitlams, the Darling Harbour Jazz Festival with Tina Harrod, and opened for Vika and Linda Bull, Russell Morris and The Badloves. Currently Helen is writing for her forthcoming second album. “A beautiful selection of songs interpreted with great feeling and backed by some of Australia’s finest musicians.” – Brian Wise, Off The Record / RRR radio. “…The voice is exquisite and the playing is beautiful.” – Jeff Jenkins, The Music / ABC Radio. “Love the album, congratulations.” – Paul Gough, The Inside Sleeve / ABC Radio National
