Erin Michelle Wüthrich (born August 10, 1992),[2] also known as Aryn Wüthrich and professionally as Ryn Weaver,[5] is an American singer and songwriter who first gained attention with the single "OctaHate" in June 2014. Billboard called the single a viral sensation.[6]

Early life[edit]

Ryn Weaver was born and raised in San Diego, California by her father Maxwell "Max" Wuthrich, an architect and her mother Cynthia. She has Canadian, French, Swiss, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German ancestry.[7] She has three brothers; Parker, Taylor, and Christopher. Weaver has stated that at a young age she chose to change the spelling of her name, Erin, to Aryn, claiming the original spelling was "ordinary and didn't suit [her]".[1] The rest of her stage name, Weaver, is her mother's maiden name.[8] She spent years learning different art forms including musical theater, painting, acting as well as music at Canyon Crest Academy in San Diego.[6] Weaver moved to New York City for college to pursue her acting career where she attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out.[9] She then moved back to California.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Weaver met producer Benny Blanco briefly in New York. A few years later they reconnected at Blanco's birthday party through a mutual friend in Los Angeles. Blanco signed Weaver to his imprint under Interscope Records, Friends Keep Secrets.[6][9]

On June 21, 2014, Weaver posted her single "OctaHate" on her SoundCloud account and within hours it received attention from many artists including Charli XCX, Charlie Puth, Harry Styles,[6][10] Jessie Ware and Hayley Williams of Paramore.[6][11] The song also reached number one on Billboard Emerging Artists Chart on June 25, 2014.[10]

On August 12, 2014 Weaver's debut EP, Promises was released as a digital download. Weaver's debut studio album, entitled The Fool, was released on June 16, 2015, through Mad Love and Interscope Records.[12] It sold 13,800 units in its first week.[13] Weaver performed at Lollapalooza on August 1, 2015.[14][15] She performed at Billboard's first ever Hot 100 Festival on August 23, 2015.[16] She revealed she has recently left her label at Interscope and is currently unsigned.[citation needed]

On September 14, 2018, Neon Gold released Weaver's demo single titled Reasons Not To Die.[17] This is her first song in three years since The Fool.
