ABOUT ACOUSTIC LIVE VOL. 1

71WfEKlI2cL._SL1500_Josh Ritter’s very first acoustic live album! Ten favorites from two incredible nights at Somerville Theater in Somerville, Massachusetts. During the winter of 2014, Josh toured as part of an acoustic trio, bringing along Zachariah Hickman (upright bass, high-strung guitar, pump organ, vocals) and Josh Kaufman (electric guitar, nylon string guitar, vocals). The shows were immensely rewarding for Josh, the band, and the audience, so a few nights on the road were recorded. This album marks the first release of the Acoustic Live album series. The vinyl version is 180-gram marbled orange vinyl and includes a full album download code. The CD is housed in a thick, heavy-gauge cardboard jacket.

ABOUT JOSH RITTER

“How refreshing and inspiring it is to encounter a young artist whose achievements match his ambitions.” —The Washington Post

“The 10 Most Exciting Artists Now” —Entertainment Weekly

“100 Best Living Songwriters” —Paste Magazine

Josh Ritter is from Moscow, Idaho. The son of two neuroscientists, he was on his way to follow in their footsteps when he discovered Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” in high school. He has since released seven studio albums and has been recently named one of the 100 greatest living songwriters by Paste Magazine, alongside Dylan, Springsteen, and Neil Young. Joan Baez has covered one of his songs; Stephen King named one of Ritter’s albums the best of recent years and David Letterman has requested him twice, so far. His debut novel, Bright’s Passage, was a national bestseller.
