“In a world where there’s no shortage of fine female singer-songwriters, make no mistake, de Ridder’s up there with the best of them” – Acoustic
“Feathers is a holistic singer-songwriting performance of the highest order, gentle, simple yet ultimately stunning” – 4* R2 Magazine
Anglo-Dutch songwriter, Gitta De Ridder is excited to release new single, My Dear, Oh Boy, Oh Man; the first to be taken from new album For Everything a Season due for release in 2018; and will be hosting a single launch at London's Green Note on Sunday 22nd October.
For Everything a Season is comprised of a series of seasonal EP's collected together in a boxset (subscription available here), due for public release in its entirety in late March 2018.
The songs on For Everything a Season are a journey of experiences through life and relationships, beginning with album opener My Dear, Oh Boy, Oh Man, a song about love and loss, about finding the strength to move on and let bygones be bygones.
Recorded in the beautiful Suffolk countryside with friend and fellow songwriter Stephen Hodd, For Everything a Season is the next step following the success of previous release Feathers in 2016. Although themes across the album are quite universal, the lyrics also reflect a part of Gitta's personal and relational explorations across the past year.
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 Iron & Wine, Ane Brun and Sufjan Stevens as her inspiration. Gitta's beautifully poetic folk-pop songs go straight to the heart.
