Risa Binder is New York’s girl next door. Her debut album ‘Paper Heart,’ on the Warehouse Records label, is as irresistibly charming as the cupcakes, cookies and chocolate shops that inspired it. “My favorite things to do are write music and eat dessert,” Binder explains. Watch her perform the title track of her debut album at her favorite Brooklyn sweetshop The Chocolate Room:http://bit.ly/tBy8ua.

Since studying songwriting in Nashville, Binder has achieved an impressive list of accomplishments:

- Recorded her debut album at Smoakstack Studios in Nashville with ace producer Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Nathanson, Ingrid Michaelson) Binder’s playful, romantic vocals will resonate with fans of Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride and Taylor Swift.

- Her track “You Made It Rain” has steadily climbed its way up the Country Indicator Chart and has been selected by Kodak for inclusion in its Target music kiosks everywhere. The song has received airplay on over 30 radio stations nationwide.

- Binder has received multiple sync licenses for her music. “Just Like That” can be heard on Cougar Town and “Falling Apart” can be heard in the Lifetime movie Queen Sized.

- She has opened for James Taylor and performed for the troops at West Point.

- Binder founded Be the Change Blog, a charity dedicated to honoring New Yorkers’ everyday acts of kindness. (http://bethechangeblog.com/)
