Josh Ritter

josh-ritter-lgJosh Ritter – To the Dogs or Whoever

On the train into work this morning, I read Mary-Louis Parker’s endorsement of Josh Ritter in Esquire and felt compelled to share a song. I first heard Mr. Ritter singing “Come and Find Me” in the spring of my senior year of college while fully embracing my writerly whims. And every spring since, whether in conversation with friends, through the words of a famous actress, or due to his relentless touring, I re-encounter his masterful songwriting and performing.

If you haven’t, seek him out. His words are well-chosen, his imagery precise, and his live show is one of the most joyous occasions you will ever experience.

  1. Right on…Josh is one of the best live performers I have ever seen, and I continue to be amazed by the number of people who *haven’t* heard about him.
