Josh Ritter – Sermon on the Rocks

Idaho singer-songwriter Josh Ritter continues to hone his craft and release diverse, poignant and breathlessly entertaining albums which evoke the greats of the ‘singer-songwriter’ profession. His writing is literary, witty and timeless and has one foot in Americana, another foot in the Paul Simon-esque American folk, storyteller tradition while his heart is very much in Springsteen land! His 8th release, ‘Sermon on the Rocks’ sees Ritter in his most joyfully verbose mode to date, lead single ‘Getting Ready To Get Down’ channeling a veritable novels-worth of words on the subject of small-town religion and rebellion, while his long-standing skill at creating timeless gothic American folk songs is evident throughout.

Another classic from a true craftsman
