Take a look around during a Josh Ritter show and notice the beaming smiles on the faces of everyone in the crowd. His passion and talent for songwriting shines through in his thought-provoking and emotional lyrics. Over the course of nine studio albums, he has earned the title of one of the “100 Greatest Living Songwriters” by Paste Magazine.
His newest album, Gathering, presents a collection of uncertainty, mania, laughter and sadness for fans and should be listened to with an intent focus on the lyrics. A true creative talent, Ritter has also published a novel and finds solace in painting.
