Ritt Deitz


Acoustic roots rock.

This is acoustic roots rock that Pike 27 leadman Dave Purcell calls both "gritty and intelligent" and "sweet, gentle and smoldering." The songs move seamlessly from single, lingering melodies to the train-like stomp riffs that fans know from Ritt's vibrant live shows. Like this Kentuckian when he's on stage, Ritt's recordings are the fruit of years of playing traditional music and rock and roll, in band after band, with pals, family and the occasional rival.

Pop


Ritt's fifth album, POP, is a great collection of songs that show a more rocking/pop side to Deitz' songwriting. The songs pop, funk and slink through classic rock hooks and jams. As is his habit, Ritt invited friends and family members to the recording sessions and clocks in with his most organic feeling disc to date.

Pleasure Isle


Ritt Deitz's third CD, PLEASURE ISLE, is a story of pools, sex, trains, rivers, dogs, barges, babies, Moses, small hands, and softball.

Hillbilly


Ritt Deitz's debut recording is "a quiet, sure-handed roots album that stands up to repeated listening." (Isthmus). Ritt's songs are full of trees, children, liquor, and pie. Big-hearted acoustic folk music.
