The Half Moon

A captivating and atmospheric slice of UK Americana.” Paul Sexton, journalist / broadcaster (Sunday Times, BBC Radio 2)

Surrey-based Rebecca has been steadily establishing her unique place on the UK Americana scene with performances on BBC1, at the Isle of Wight and Black Deer Festivals and at venues such as the Bedford, the Brunswick and The Sound Lounge, where she was featured among artists to look out for in 2018 by journalist-broadcaster Paul Sexton.

Her debut album 'Not All Who Wander Have Lost Their Way' is a delightful showcase for her powerfully intimate songs, all invested with heartfelt lyrics and smoky delivery on a compelling record that will stand tall on the ever-growing UK Americana scene. Rooted in the traditions of soulful blues and tinged with influences from pop-rock, the music is presented in Rebecca's own authentic voice. The album features a wide range of instrumentation and fine performances by her fellow musicians including harp from Tom Moth (a key member of Florence + the Machine), David Rothon (The Redlands Palomino Company), Ed Jordan, Keiron Marshall, Shemeck Fraczek and Tim Doble.

Riedtmann shows all the classic traits of the true artist, conjuring lyrics that speak of real life and melodies and riffs that reel you in from the first listen. If you’ve ever enjoyed the music of Frazey Ford of the Be Good Tanyas, Stevie Nicks, Suzanne Vega, K.T. Tunstall or Norah Jones you'll feel right at home here.
