Album Review: Rebecca De Winter - And Other Tales (Self Release)
If you thought for a moment that one of Daphne Du Maurier's leading characters had popped out from one of the writer's classic novels to take up a singing career then you'd be half right. Taking the name of Du Maurier's eponymous heroine, this Bedford-born singer-songwriter presents eleven original songs co-written for the most part with sideman David Litchfield on this her debut album.
With occasional shades of Regina Spektor, Rebecca de Winter invites us into her own specific world of bewitching enchantment, suitably reflected in Cat Lane's ethereal cover photography. Formerly of indie-folk band Tinker Jack, Rebecca has finely tuned her own songwriting skills with her collaborative songwriting partnership on this Ru Cook/Nick Mailing-produced solo project, with some surprisingly commercially results including Brother Sister and Shy Bride as well as one or two uplifting moments such as Higher Skies. With ...AND OTHER TALES, we may just see Rebecca de Winter move into a different league than the one she has thus far been accustomed to.
