Josh Ritter talks touring with Jason Isbell, writing for Bob Weir and more



Josh Ritter's folksy, soulful, literate brand of alternative Americana doesn't sound like music that always has a home on country radio. But that doesn't mean it'll never happen.

"There's a time for us where things come around, and maybe people start paying attention to the some of the stuff that has a little less shine," he said in a phone interview from his home in Brooklyn.

Not that he's up nights waiting.

"I support my family," he said. "I really love what I do. I'm able to record with abandon. My artistic life doesn't need to get bigger. I'm right now, personally, in my own way, at the top of my game."

On Wednesday, Ritter and singer-songwriter Jason Isbell will perform at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. Click here for details.
