Josh Ritter
Very Johnny Cash, Josh Ritter is from Seattle. Good stuff, a little countryish, but not objectionably so. I love the drum part buried back there in "Monster Ballads" He made a splash at the Newport Folk Festival a couple of years ago and then scored a big hit last year, first in Ireland and then in Europe where he's been touring. He's now signed to a semi-major label and put out a new record "The Animal Years" recently. You can hear the whole album at:
