Welcome to the first of six Belles and Gals live spotlight pieces this week, with a headline gig on Friday night at the Slaughtered Lamb in London, followed by our UK Country Music Spotlight Awards at the Water Rats in London on Sunday.
Rebecca Riedtmann is our headliner on Friday evening and this will be her second appearance at a Belles and Gals gig – the last time she appeared solo at our showcase, this time around she’ll be playing with her full band. The Surrey based Americana singer songwriter released her debut album ‘Not All Wander Have Lost Their Way’
An excerpt from a review of the album from Americana UK tells you all you need to know about how highly rated the album is:
‘The crowning of the record though, and what brings everything together is Rebecca’s voice. It’s rich, strong, clear and resonant. It’s not Nicks; It’s like a more full-toned Sixpence None the Richer and a slightly less Celtic Lick the Tins. It is, above all, deeply satisfying. Having such a strong vocal presence drives cool finger clicking tunes like ‘Better Me’ and ‘Eyes on Me’, it lifts the piano-driven slower tempo ‘Words’, caresses around the sultry ‘Southern Dream’ and lets loose on the impassioned ‘Closer’. Riedtmann has delivered a fine album which, we have to remind ourselves is a debut. On this form the next one is going to be very very special. This kind of talent needs to be heard – go listen.’
