Cleveland's Music Headliner

Josh Ritter

One of today’s most thoughtful and prolific voices, Ritter has released ten studio albums including 2019’s widely acclaimed, Fever Breaks, of which NPR Music praised, “He remains a hydrant of ideas while embodying an endless capacity for empathy and indignation, often within a single song.”

Over the course of his career, Ritter has released ten full-length albums including 2019’s Fever Breaks, which was produced by Jason Isbell and features Amanda Shires along with Isbell’s band, the 400 Unit. Released to widespread acclaim, the album debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums Chart, #5 on Independent Albums Chart, #14 on Top Current Albums Chart, and appeared on the Billboard 200. Rolling Stone raved, “It’s classic Ritter on Muscle Shoals-bred steroids,” while the Associated Press heralded, “There have been plenty of highlights in Ritter’s nearly 20-year recording career but it’s the intensity of the music and imagery that makes Fever Breaks an especially engaging outing.”

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.”
