GITTA DE RIDDER - SINGLE REVIEW

Gitta De Ridder - Mr Yesterday (Little Memories Records) 
Gitta De Ridder - Mr Yesterday

Dutch singer-songewriter Gitta De Ridder has played all around Europe before settling on the musical Mecca that is London town as the place to seek her fame and fortune. This new single and video, 'Mr Yesterday', are both delightfully wistful pieces of art in their own right. The video is a sepia toned slow flick through a photography album full of bittersweet memories of good times long since gone. Musically, the song mingles rolling acoustic plucks with long held piano notes that warm the heart and bring a tear to the eye. De Ridder's voice has an undeniably European twang but it's breathlessness and cracks around the edges just add to the beauty and emotion of the song. This is an understated by simultaneously powerful introduction to what I hope will be a fruitful musical career for Gitta De Ridder.
