Josh Ritter Golden Age of Radio on Limited Edition 180g LP + CD
Folk-leaning singer/songwriter Josh Ritter's songs are a rare gift of natural, intuitive beauty. Maybe it's his Idaho roots (promising far more resilience in the face of music industry pressures than a Manhattanite gene pool would), or maybe it's just the ethereal collision of inspired songwriting, understated passion, and an arsenal of future classics that sets him apart.
He recorded and released his self-titled debut in 1999, but it was 2002's Golden Age of Radio that got him noticed. Selling copies on his own funded touring, Signature Sounds Recordings soon picked the album up, gave it exposure on a national level, and the four and five-star reviews started rolling in. The HBO series Six Feet Under grabbed a track from the album for their end credits, while Ritter received an offer to open for the Frames on a tour of Ireland.
Soon his single "Me & Jiggs" was in the Irish Top 40, a headlining tour of the country was sold out, and a tribute band named Cork was playing nothing but Ritter material in numerous Irish pubs. Back home, his following was growing with sold-out shows in New York City and Boston, while an invitation to the Sundance Film Festival began 2003 on a high note.
