Her catchy debut single OctaHate spread across the internet like wildfire — but Ryn Weaver is no one-hit wonder. The California singer has since delivered stellar performances at SXSW and Coachella, and next month she'll release her debut album The Fool. 

Weaver joins Friday guest host Tom Power to perform three songs: Promises, The Fool and Octahate. She also sits down to discuss her viral hit, her unique sound, and why she says female artists always deal with negative attention.
