Anglo-Dutch singer and songwriter Gitta de Ridder sings things as they are. The simplicity of her songwriting leaving the space for her heart-filled vocals to purvey the words in their purest form. Inspired by modern folk artists such as Anais Mitchell and Iron & Wine she has been playing and releasing her songs since early 2015 which led to appearances on Dutch national TV and Radio and support from BBC introducing and several local stations in the UK.
An engaging lady who has the ability to mesmerise and draw an audience into the magical world of her songs. A world full of feeling, warmth, kindness, honesty, joy and sadness. Her folk-pop songs with beautifully poetic but also conversational lyrics go straight to the heart and are performed on a bed of warm fingerpicked guitar topped by a voice full of character and emotion.
As well as a talented singer-songwriter Gitta also organises and promotes her great gig night 'Sound Of Songs', which is held on a quarterly basis both in London and Amsterdam (see details below)
Gitta will be releasing her excellent debut album 'Feathers' on the 21st September. Pre-sales and other goodies are available through her crowd-funding page at Pledge Music. http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/gitta-de-ridder
