WXPN Welcomes Josh Ritter to Union Transfer in February
Ritter recorded his new album in New Orleans. Co-produced by Ritter and Trina Shoemaker, it was recorded over two weeks at New Orleans’ The Parlor Recording Studio and features Matt Barrick from The Walkmen on drums, Zachariah Hickman on bass, Josh Kaufman on guitar and Sam Kassirer on piano. Sermon on the Rocks follows up his 2013 album, The Beast In Its Tracks. With each new album he makes, Ritter continues to grow musically, and Sermon showcases Ritter’s fantastic story telling and ambitious songwriting craft.
Below, listen to an interview Josh did with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen, and two songs from Josh’s forthcoming album, out on October 16th.
