Introducing Josh Ritter (SONY BMG Recs)

In Moscow, Idaho Josh Ritter grew up the son of two Neuroscientists.  He also studied Neuroscience but later changed to a self-created “American History Through Narrative Folk Music”.  He was later spotted performing by Glen Hansard of The Frames (AKA the star of the movie ‘Once’).
Ritter’s fantastic songsmithing quickly amassed him a following particularly in Britain.  In 2006 he was dubbed one of the “100 Greatest Living Songwriters” by Paste Magazine.  He had just released the album “Animal Years” which paid subtle poetic tribute to America.  In 2010 Ritter released his 6th album ‘So Runs the World Away’.
