To mark the release of her new album ‘Feathers‘ on September 21st we have a video premiere from Anglo-Dutch singer-songwriter Gitta De Ridder for her new single Even If. Even If, a song about friendship – or loneliness, shows Gitta’s lyrical ability in an effortlessly catchy chorus with beautiful vocal harmonies. As you’ll see, Gitta had plenty of fun dressing up for the video as well.
“We need feathers to be able to fly…. to learn and to grow on this journey called life…”
Originally growing up in the Netherlands, Gitta taught herself to write and play songs on the guitar from a young age and cites modern folk artists such as Anais Mitchell as her inspiration.
Gitta’s folkpop songs, with beautifully poetic but also conversational lyrics, go straight to the heart and are performed on a bed of warm fingerpicked guitar.
Feathers is an album which follows a true creative vision, focused on the words that make stories come to life, it explores relationships, romance, family and cities, and all that makes us human. Recorded mostly in Gitta’s London home-studio with one-take vocals and guitar recordings layered with children’s toy instruments, cello’s and other sounds; Feathers was created intuitively, realising the treasures are in that what comes naturally.
Feathers is released on September 21st
