Recently word got out that Ryan Hemsworth started a new label called Secret Songs—another thing to add to his resume of lofty accomplishments. The first signee to his label, RYAN Playground, not only shares the same name as Hemsworth, but is an accomplished singer-songwriter and producer. The Montreal based musician is a lover of pop-punk and electronica—the eclecticness of her tastes is something that shines through on her debut EP elle. Following its release, RYAN opens up to us and lets us get to know her better.

This is inspired by a perfect day in Paris two summers ago.
