Uvulittle to release Ritt Deitz' CD in early 2006

Sun, Aug 21, 2005

Uvulittle Records is pleased to announce a new release by Ritt Deitz, AFTER THE MOUNTAINS.

Ritt’s latest record—his fourth—features 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.

AFTER THE MOUNTAINS is Ritt’s latest batch of beautiful, straight-ahead songs. 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, these 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.
