Josh Ritter Details
Drawing inspiration from his parent’s old Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan albums, Josh Ritter went to the local K-Mart and purchased his first guitar. After graduating college, Ritter attended Oberlin College in Ohio and designed his own major- American History Through Narrative Folk Music. During his time at Oberlin, when he was only 21, Ritter recorded his self-titled debut album at the campus recording studio. Upon graduation Ritter packed his bags and moved to Scotland for six months to attend the Scottish School of Folk Studies for six months before moving back home to Idaho.
From there, Ritter traveled throughout New England, performing at open mic nights, selling his album, and working temporary jobs to support himself. He was soon discovered by Irish band, The Frames, who invited him back to Ireland with him. In Ireland he found that he was more successful in selling his album and was finally able to devote himself to his music full-time.
In the year 2000, Ritter self-produced his second album Golden Age of Radio. While playing in Ireland he was approached by Jim Olsen, who was head of Signature Sound, an independent record label. Olsen offered to remaster and re-release the album. Following this, Ritter’s hit single “Me & Jiggs” was released in Ireland where he had been growing in popularity through performances with The Frames.
in 2003, Ritter and former Frames band member produced his third album, Hello Starling. His increasing popularity lead to headlining gigs at various music festivals across Ireland. Those festivals included performance with Ron Sexsmith at the Newport Folk Festival in 2004 and with Joan Baez at the Oxegen festival in 2005. Joan later covered Ritter’s song “Wings” and included it on one of her albums.
Ritter had finally found his place in the folk music scene, and he was signed with V2 Records near the end of 2005. His fourth album, The Animal Years was released in 2006 followed by Ritter’s first full-length live album, and DVD, In The Dark- Live at Vicar Street. Both albums received widespread success. In 2007 Ritter released The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter which along with The Animal Years was received warmly and according to Stephen King’s column in Entertainment Weekly Animal Years was the best album of the year. Historical Conquests earned him an appearance on
In 2009 and 2010 respectively, Ritter re-released his second and third albums as deluxe editions including both acoustic and and original versions of the tracks. In 2009 he also began touring with Love Canon String Base and wrote tracks for a few small films. Ritter’s sixth album, So Runs The World Away, was released worldwide in May, 2010. This album contained both a CD and vinyl version of the music and a few singles were released for free download to promote the album beforehand. One year later, Ritter released his seventh album, which was an EP of the unreleased material from his previous album, titled To The Yet Unknowing World. Ritter and his band continued their extensive tour of Europe and gained popularity along the way.
Ritter’s most recent album Sermon On The Rocks was released in October 2015 and Ritter shows no signs of slowing down. After a rocky start in the US, Ritter has become an international superstar among folk fans. He is praised for his unique sound and dedication to music. Josh Ritter puts his heart and soul into every song he releases, and that is evident in the quality of his music. Be sure to see Josh Ritter perform while he’s back in the states this year!
