She didn’t get her shot at scoring a record deal through youtube, however she did become an overnight sensation on SoundCloud. Her track “Octahate” written by herself and Charli XCX ,and produced by Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Cashmere Cat, and Benny Blanco reached a million plays within the first two weeks back in 2014. It marked her as a definite artist to watch. The Californian, Erin Michelle Wüthrich, which goes by her artist name;Ryn Weaver, attended NYU to pursue a career in acting, but decided to drop out and pursue her passion instead; music.
Weaver is now a successful singer, songwriter and is currently working on her producing skills. “Promises” comprised her next hit, and while many identify her music as pop, her influences are actually drawn from old pop, alternative and rock. The up-and-comer’s music also falls into the indie-pop genre embracing synth-pop sounds.
Between her gigs at Coachella she made a stop at San Francisco’s The Independent, to a sold-out show Wednesday night. The 22-year-old sang her heart out live, as she dedicated one of her songs to her late grandfather. The crowd was dancing and singing along with her.
Fans will finally have a date to anticipate when her album “The Fool” set to release on June 16th.
She will be playing at festivals across the country for the summer and returning for Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, on August 8th.
