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.
Rittâ€™s latest recordâ€”his fourthâ€”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 Rittâ€™s latest batch of beautiful, straight-ahead songs. This is acoustic roots rock that Pike 27 leadman Dave Purcell calls both â€œgritty and intelligentâ€ and â€œsweet, gentle and smoldering.â€ The songs move seamlessly from single, lingering melodies to the train-like stomp riffs that fans know from Rittâ€™s vibrant live shows. Like this Kentuckian when heâ€™s on stage, these recordings are the fruit of years of playingâ€”traditional music and rock and roll, in band after band, with pals, family and the occasional rival.
