Josh Ritter on World Cafe

An Acoustic Set With Josh Ritter From Sermon On The Rocks On The Day It Is Released


Our guest today is Moscow, Idaho born singer-songwriter and author Josh Ritter. His new album called Sermon On the Rocks is being released today. It's his eighth album since he began recording while a student at Oberlin College in 1999. This record was tracked in New Orleans. As we find out today, it was mostly for the vibe not for any traditional New Orleans musical elements. Starting with the title this album is filled with biblical references. Classic bible stories were part of his Idaho upbringing and Josh figures those stories are pretty universal ways to get ideas across. We will hear acoustic versions of the new songs on release day today.
