Josh Ritter – Getting Ready To Get Down

Josh_RitterJosh Ritter was born and raised in Moscow, Idaho, a college town in the northwestern part of the state. As a teenager, after hearing Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” on his parents’ copy of Nashville Skyline, he attempted to write songs on a lute that his father had built, before abandoning the lute and buying his first guitar at K-Mart.
At the age of 21 Josh recorded his first album Josh Ritter at a recording studio on the campus of Oberlin College in Ohio. After graduating, Josh moved to Scotland to attend the School of Scottish Folk Studies for six months. Ritter sold copies of his album and was spotted by Glen Hansard and his band The Frames, who invited him to return with them to Ireland. As an early sign of his success to come, Ritter found on the trip to Ireland that his album sold particularly well at open mics there. With the money from merchandise sales, Ritter was eventually able to quit his day job and devote himself to music full-time.
