Ryn Weaver To Perform As Part Of SPA LateNight

The Student Programming Association announced Monday afternoon singer/songwriter Ryn Weaver will perform at the HUB on Friday, Nov. 4 at 10 p.m. as part of SPA LateNight in Alumni Hall. Weaver is best known for her album The Fool and single “OctaHate,” which ranked first on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart when it was released in 2014.

A native of San Diego, California, Weaver spent much of her childhood focusing on music before moving to Manhattan for college, where she met producer Benny Blanco. She reconnected with Blanco — who’s known for working with artists like Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, and Maroon 5 — when she moved to Los Angeles two years later. Soon after, Weaver and Blanco started working on music together, and the rest is history.

Weaver was included on Time‘s “15 Musical Artists To Watch In 2015” and The Huffington Post’s “25 Artists You Need To Start Listening To In 2015” lists. She even performed “OctaHate” on the Late Show with David Letterman. During August 2015, Weaver performed at both Lollapalooza and Billboard’s inaugural Hot 100 Festival. She has also written or co-written songs for artists including JoJo, Gwen Stefani, and Wilder Green.

Weaver’s SPA LateNight performance is free to students with a Penn State ID. Check her out below:
