Our Song of the Day is from singer-songwriter Gitta De Ridder with her new video for Wanderer taken from her recently released album Feathers. The video features footage shot by Gitta over the time she made the album travelling between Devon, London and the Dutch countryside and depicts the of journeys Gitta’s life creating the album.
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 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.
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.
