“Feathers is a holistic singer-songwriting performance of the highest order, gentle, simple yet ultimately stunning” – 4* R2 Magazine
“With an equally as confrontational video, ‘Till The Day That I Die’ embodies Gitta’s raw honest and natural eloquence.” – Gigslutz
‘Till The Day That I Die’
Following the release of album Feathers in late 2016, Gitta De Ridder has announced new single ‘Till The Day That I Die plus a string of UK and Europe tour dates, including a show at The Finsbury in London on Monday 8th May.
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 Sufjan Stevens and 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 finger-picked guitar.
‘Till the Day That I Die is a song about allowing space within ourselves and our relationships. About allowing life to take it’s course realising we are not always in control and that for every conscious decision we make we have made a hundred subconscious ones that lead the way. And that underneath it all, love, regardless of outcome, will always stay.
