if there’s a book of jubilations, we’ll have to write it for ourselves
I believe in rock and roll as a religion. I believe that if you close your eyes and tilt your head back, the right live music is capable of transformation and transportation. I believe in the church of effects pedals and goosebumps on your arms and crying because there’s nothing else to do in the face of something so beautiful.
And there is no, no, no one performing today who comes closer to that perfect moment of transformation than Josh Ritter does.
