Josh Ritter - Works In Progress + Songs You Know

Friday, May 17, 2024 @ 7:30pm



Outpost In The Burbs
40 S Fullerton Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042

Renowned singer, songwriter, musician, artist and best-selling author Josh Ritter released his eleventh studio album, 'Spectral Lines', last year.

One of today’s most thoughtful and prolific voices, Ritter has been praised by NPR Music on his 2019’s widely acclaimed 'Fever Breaks' album: “He remains a hydrant of ideas while embodying an endless capacity for empathy and indignation, often within a single song.”

In addition to his work as a musician, Ritter is also a national best-selling author, having released two novels to date: 2021’s The Great Glorious Goddamn of It All and 2011’s Bright’s Passage. Released to critical attention, Stephen King wrote in The New York Times Book Review that Bright’s Passage “shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime…This is the work of a gifted novelist.”

This is a special Works In Progress + Songs You Know solo show. Here's a note from Ritter about the event:

"I’ve realized that a necessary part of working on records is finding the material that hangs together. I write A LOT of songs, and not all of them play nicely with the others. The most useful (and fun) way to find a song’s heart is to periodically play some shows where I’m able to get it all out there and see how I feel about them. I’m really looking forward to these shows for the chance to get all these songs, and some that are old friends, out on the table for a good time."
