A classically trained musician (she studied the cello for ten years), Bryden dreamed of becoming an opera singer before hearing Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin for the first time. After a year spent in Australia honing her craft, Bryden attended Boston University where she graduated in English Literature with honours.

She then used the money to re-record her album, but this time around bringing on board Grammy-winning record producer David Kershenbaum.

The resulting album What Does it Take came out on 12th October 2009 on Cooking Vinyl in the UK and Ireland, and has enjoyed considerable critical success.
