New Jersey-based Country Singer/Songwriter Starlet The Red Betty started her musical journey around 2010 as a singer and guitarist, but it wouldn’t be until 2018 that her passion for songwriting in the Country music market would start to come to fruition; setting her sails on a journey that would eventually lead up to her distinctive and notable debut album in 2023, Couch Fables, which releases next month in February.
With her album finally released, The Red Betty would quickly start to gain traction and critical acclaim within the Country music world, winning the hearts and admirations of countless fans of all ages across the region. While the Couch Fables record as an entirety completely holds up to a gold standard in its own right, it’s her anchor single “Manma, Let Me Tell You” that truly makes the debut effort shine. This distinctively catchy Country number implements several crucial angles of the Classic Country aura, but still offers up that modern sensibility to appease just about any fan of the genre, both old and young.
The Red Betty’s mid-to-high vocal range diligently parallels the twangy single-coil Fender Strat guitar progressions, dueling fiddle harmonies and effectively subtle rhythm section. The production and performance value is very apparent, and The Red Betty’s storytelling lyrical approach truly makes her versatile vocals a standout if their calibre. Her emotionally driven hooks and measures are breathy, sincere and will easily draw you in with an ambient and atmospheric presence. The song as a whole integrates an overall buildup and climax that not only entices the listener from start to finish, but also keeps you invested into every moment throughout the song’s duration. It has that unwavering staying power – to stay with you even long after it’s over.
“Mamma, Let Me Tell You” is undoubtedly one of The Red Betty’s gems on this debut album, and will easily win you over with its charm, versatility and sincere emotion. She is an artist on the rise that has a promising career ahead of her, and this single is direct proof. It is currently available on Spotify, ReverbNation, and several other digital music streaming platforms. You won’t regret adding it to your playlist whatsoever. Couch Fables officially drops next month in February.
