Ryn Weaver - "Pierre"
She’s has a bit of an up an down career, that just goes to show you an artist is not defined by their commercial success. She’s had big breaks and had hits and yet still seems to be on the fringes of success. Her music, however, stands the test of time and is consistently fresh and entrancing.
Weaver met producer Benny Blanco briefly in New York. A few years later they reconnected at Blanco's birthday party through a mutual friend in Los Angeles. Blanco signed Weaver to his imprint under Interscope Records, Friends Keep Secrets.
On June 21, 2014, Weaver posted her single "OctaHate" on her SoundCloud account and within hours it received attention from many artists including Charli XCX, Charlie Puth, Harry Styles, Jessie Ware and Hayley Williams of Paramore. The song also reached number one on Billboard Emerging Artists Chart on June 25, 2014.
On August 12, 2014 Weaver's debut EP, Promises was released as a digital download. Weaver's debut studio album, entitled The Fool, was released on June 16, 2015, through Mad Love and Interscope Records. It sold 13,800 units in its first week. Weaver performed at Lollapalooza on August 1, 2015. She performed at Billboard's first ever Hot 100 Festival on August 23, 2015. She revealed she has recently left her label at Interscope and is currently unsigned.
On September 14, 2018, Neon Gold released Weaver's demo single titled "Reasons Not to Die". This is her first song in three years since The Fool, which is where today’s song comes from.
The song sings of all the wrong roads you can take that will lead you to the right one. It’s upbeat and yet still understanding of the rough moments we go though post pulling our hearts apart from someone we’ve loved. It’s a delicate dance we play with ourselves full of small goals and little smiles that slowly heal the heart we’ve wounded.
So today, with a jaunty tilt to my hat and a twinkle in my eye, I choose Ryn Weaver’s “Pierre” as my, fall in love as often as you can, you get to keep the love you make, yours are jewels to be mined and polished, song for a, break open the vault, laugh at the mishaps, keep moving forward with that rakish smile, Monday.
