Josh Ritter The Gov' 9th Sept 2005
Idaho-born troubadour Josh Ritter crafts songs that are rare gift of natural, intuitive beauty. Recalling such seventies greats as Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt, he breathes life into a classic genre while introducing younger audiences to a sound both intimate and dynamic. Josh will be bringing his music to Australian audiences in September 2005, supporting New York songstress Martha Wainwright on her first Australian tour. Born in the late 70’s to two neuroscientists in the small town of Moscow, Idaho, Ritter began Oberlin College with the intent to follow in his parents’scientific footsteps. Instead, he discovered the songwriting of such artists as Gillian Welch, Van Zandt, and Leonard Cohen and set off on a distinctly different path. Upon graduation, he moved east to Boston, and in 2001 recorded his breakthrough album, Golden Age of Radio at various tiny, one-room studios on the East Coast.
