After The Mountains
Ritt Deitz' After The Mountains available Feb 7, 2006!
Fri, Jan 6, 2006
Uvulittle Records is pleased to announce the release of Ritt Deitz' "After The Mountains." The disc, Deitz' fourth, will be promoted in the region the Ritt tours in - Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
This is solid acoustic roots rock. Ritt is backed in the studio by longtime pal and high-school bandmate "Kentucky Jim" Faris on the standup bass, son Wilder Deitz on piano, veteran collaborator Craig Totten on dobro and guitar, and a host of other live-show regulars.
Pike 27 leadman Dave Purcell calls Ritt's songs "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.
