About Gayle Ritt:

Over the decades -- singing, performing, songwriting, collaborating and recording, Gayle Ritt continues to reach listeners with her music and live performances throughout the US and abroad . "The promise of an ongoing love affair with her music will begin the moment you hear the first note." said one friend -- and her live performances are as varied as her styles - from live acoustic at the House of Blues Foundation Room to small club rock shows, hotel residencies, elegant corporate events and picnics. Solo, duo, trio, full rocking band, sweet jazz duo or combo, country, pop, folk, acoustic metal, show tunes, improvisation and freestyles - Ritt sings it all. After 30 years performing, and musical adventures in Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami - she's settled in the NW.

Ritt's National Anthem has been heard over the airwaves and throughout the world for local and National sports teams -- including her standing invitation by the Chicago Cubs. Highlights: Wrigley Field, PGE Park, Dodgers Stadium, The Staples Center, US Cellular Field and the Thomas & Mack Center for the Lakers, Dodgers, White Sox, Timbers and Gladiators. The impact has resulted in millions hearing her voice, news features and national commercials on TV and Radio and her five independent releases have crossed many genres - Acoustic folk, rock, pop, metal, jazz, and improvisation.

Singing throughout the Oregon Countryside with her love and partner, Mike Soto - and their band 23window -- is what she loves best. Having recently released, IN THE RAW, an improvisation project - 13 tracks made up on the spot - she continues to put forward new music. Sweet harmonies on several tracks of the recent Lindsie Feathers release, Neon Renaissance are hers -- and the two perform together in Portland. Releasing from the archives -- live piano and vocals recorded in NYC with Martin Bejerano -- 100% freestyle - a single, "unconditional" Vaut Records 2018. Most importantly -- hearts touched -- souls united and many great times created in the moment.
