Josh Ritter – An Artist’s Artist
Josh Ritter is amazing. His songs are thought-provoking. Like cracking open a book he begins to tell you a story.
I’ve witnessed him mesmerize a room with his songs. Hundreds of people put under his spell, just he and his guitar and adoring fans. Conversely, with his full band, he’ll rock the place.
He’ll make you both laugh and cry, with very different songs. His lyrics seep into your soul. In a previous life when I owned a record store, I would have played Josh for everyone who walked through the door. Like Leonard Cohen he’s an artist’s artist.
Josh Ritter’s latest album is So Runs The World Away. Available at Starbucks on May 4.
