You may have heard the buzz about Josh Ritter through your musical grapevine, but chances are, you've probably stalked his career progression through underground outlets, not your typical major label brand methods. Ritter, the master of under the radar success, has somehow managed to string along a massive following of fanatics just narrowly escaping the obnoxious obsessions from the teenybopper a-la-Justin Bieber crowd (which is quite surprising considering his God-given gorgeous baby blues would make any girl swoon).
Hailed by critics for his singer-songwriter folk tunes, or "rock 'n' roll with lots of words" as the Idaho native so delightfully labels it, Ritter captured the attention of music enthusiasts in Ireland and the UK long before being fully noticed in his own homeland. Having been at the touring, recording, and performing game for over a decade, Josh Ritter's early success has not faded, and dare we say, he grows more popular with each album. At this rate, he won't be under the radar for much longer.
He's so popular, in fact that his sure-to-be packed show at The Fillmore on 6/24 will almost certainly sell out. Lucky for you, we have 2 pairs of tickets to give away (each pair accompanied by a Josh Ritter tour poster as well). To win, all you have to do is tell us where Ritter's latest album title So Runs The World Away is derived from. Winners will be chosen at random.
