«How refreshing and inspiring it is to encounter an artist whose achievements match his ambitions.» — The Washington Post

Josh Ritter's acclaimed 20-year career as a songwriter and musician reaches new heights with the release of his ninth full-length album, Gathering. Along with his loyal bandmates, the Royal City Band, Josh returned to the studio with more songs than he'd ever had before at one time. Re-energized after a recent collaboration with legendary musician Bob Weir (who also contributes vocals and guitar to a song on Gathering) and — at the same time — tired of living in the shadow of his earlier self, Josh felt charged with exploring the possibility of cutting himself loose from his own and others' expectations. In his words, «I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. I still can't tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me.»

A songwriter, a musician, a New York Times best-selling author, a painter, a consummate performer. Josh Ritter encompasses all of these descriptors and more. He is a true artist. One who is not afraid of growing, changing and constantly challenging earlier versions of himself. Here, two decades into his storied career, Josh Ritter is just getting started.

Gathering is out on 22nd September.
