NYC singer, songwriter, and daredevil Eddy Lee Ryder (formerly Liz Brennan), has released a brand new single, “Vultures” today! The single is available to listen to now across streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music.
On the single, Ryder shares, “‘Vultures’ is a song about being disillusioned by love. It’s still supposed to be haunting and romantic discussing the darkness in people’s intentions while hiding behind a pretty melody. I wrote the first line of ‘Vultures’ a few years ago. However, the song sat unfinished for a long time. I was trying to find peace and understanding (and some irony even) in the darkness around me. Watching so many other women find their voices this past year, I was inspired to say what I needed to say on these issues.”
Eddy Lee Ryder creates surprise-filled songs infused with rock and pop that tell dramatic stories filtered through a slightly cracked lens. Proclaimed “demented pop,” her music is propelled by her charismatic voice that breathes fresh life into lyrics inspired by the intensity, struggle and grit of NYC and the bizarre worlds beyond. A ready, willing and able mistress of everything from murder ballads to love songs and upbeat party tunes, Eddy’s unconventional, theatrical approach to songwriting mingles contagious ‘70s good-time rock riffs and pop beats with complex poetry, layers that sparkle through her well-crafted recordings that invite audiences to explore her inner world; an apocalyptic dance party.
To date, she released an EP under her former moniker, Liz Brennan, as well as a series of singles, in collaboration with Kevin Killen best known for his work on Peter Gabriel’s So, and the Grammy-award winning record Blackstar by David Bowie. Among her singles “The Party Song,” which takes a satirical look at party culture that, went viral, exceeding 2M views due to a fake casting call to all available bachelor’s willing to dance in only a tuxedo top to the song.
Over the course of 2019, Ryder has released a number of singles, and is currently planning the release of her new EP, Expected To Fly.
