If you hadn’t heard of Serena Ryder before "Stompa," you certainly did after. Her 2012 single went double-platinum as a digital download. That’s a lot of clicks and it turned her from an up-and-comer to a bonafide star.

"Stompa" was from Ryder's fifth album Harmony, and it quickly rose on the charts in the U.S. Within days of its release, it became the first Canadian track to hit the number one spot on CBC Music’s Top 20 chart.

Suddenly, Ryder was everywhere: on late night American television; singing "O Canada" at an NBA all-stars game and together with the rapper Classified, she hosted the 2014 Junos. She also won two of them, which gives her a grand total of six Junos.

On this edition of My Playlist, Ryder shares the music that inspires her and the stories behind her choices.
