Ryn Weaver Interview
Ryn Weaver talks Coachella, debut album 'The Fool' and breakthrough hit "OctaHate."

Ryn Weaver arrived in fine style last summer with slow-burn hit “OctaHate.” The quirky jam captured everyone’s attention, but it was a slightly misleading introduction to the genre-hopping pop of debut LP The Fool. Tracks like “Pierre,” “Promises” and “Free” do a much better job of capturing the breadth of the 22-year-old’s vision, while “Traveling Song” proves that she can strip it right back and still destroy you emotionally.

Dedicated to her late grandfather Max Wuthrich, “Traveling Song” finds Ryn in full Cat Stevens mode. It’s a folky tale about the rigors of being on the road and the inevitable passing of time. (Keep a tissue handy for the devastating final verse). For the video, the newcomer plunders her grandpa’s collection of home movies. It’s the perfect visual accompaniment for one of the most moving songs of 2015. Watch up top.
