JUNO Award Winner Serena Ryder Featured on Music For Coffee Beings Volume 3, a compilation bringing the music of original artists to the Canadian coffee lover.


MUSIC FOR COFFEE BEINGS is a compilation CD put together by RPW Records and Magic Puddle Productions, featuring JUNO Award winner Serena Ryder along with Danielle French, Heather Haley, and other talented original artists from Canada and beyond.This is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at getting original music heard by customers in coffee shops across Canada. Magic Puddle's Pam Southwell has contacted 1,000 coffee shops across the country to ensure they played CDs or upload songs onto their iPods etc for their customers' listening enjoyment. Once this list was completed, Magic Puddle then sends out 1,000 FREE Music For Coffee Beings CDs to the 1,000 coffee shops along with 20,000 full colour brochures with info on the participating artists, links to their website, etc. The goal is to get airplay to a wide demographic of the Canadian public.

The Music For Coffee Beings CD is not for sale, but purely for the promotion of the participating artists through cafe airplay. We are celebrating the release of Volume 3 and future Volumes will be released every 3 months. This means new releases from up and coming artists can be promoted via this compilation series. Each track will be availablefor online listening at along with artist info and links to the artists websites. Each volume is archived and kept on the site as new volumes are added.

Past volumes featured WCMA winners and nominees, Joel Kroeker, Kat Danser and Kim Beggs, and Isobel Gunn from Ottawa, who were given an Honourable Mention in the International Song Contest. For more information and details, visit and
