About Josh Ritchie

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I was walking home from school one day and I passed a yard sale, normally not really my brand of vodka, but this one had this proper old electric guitar. I raced home begged my parents for some cash and my guitar addiction was born. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Gang of Youths, angel in realtime. Queen, A Day at the Races Deluxe Edition U2, The Joshua Tree Remastered Three, of many, albums that have helped shape not only my sound and songwriting but also my relationship to music. These records are more than just entertainment for me they're sacred. That's what good music does it becomes a part of who you are. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “911” 911 really is a protest song. It sums up who I am as an artist and as a person. I can't witness the cracks in our world without trying to do something about it. As a songwriter, the best thing you can do is scream 'this isn't ok' and to do it loud!
