The ONION says Ritt "works the same side of the street as Bruce Cockburn and Greg Brown." ISTHMUS' Tom Laskin calls Deitz's new record "carefully constructed" with an "angrier and more elemental side." Deitz plays straight-ahead original acoustic folk rock, most often with a quartet including his guitar, electric bass, percussion, piano/accordion, and hammered dulcimer, and has released five albums since 1999, the last two on Uvulittle Records. He plays principally in the Upper Midwest and Ohio Valley.
