Singer-songwriter, tip jar Americana with a penchant for dodging the lyrical middle road.

12 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Modern Folk, COUNTRY: Country Folk

Rick Spreitzer is a Charlotte, NC singer-songwriter who released his debut CD, Meanderthal in July 2002. He describes his music as "tip jar americana steeped in common tones that dodges the lyrical middle road." Songs of loss, hunger and repair are common themes as he finds home in the narative voice of characters too often passed-over or forgotten.

Dirt Tracks is his second CD with a smattering of NC regional diamonds like Mike Orlando and Brian Burton from Cast Iron Filter, Dave Childers, Rodney Lanier (Jolene, Sea of Cortez), Steven Carpenter and Jill Lurie (the Dickens), Trip Rogers, Jon Schigoda, Joe Kuhlmann, steady lead guitar sideman Kevin Edwards and more.

"With dozens of vocalizing songwriters in every decent-sized
city, it's too easy to lose the most promising ones in the shuffle. Here's a heads up: be on the lookout for Charlotte's Rick Spreitzer...Dirt Tracks, the second release from Spreitzer, offers a parade of interesting characters telling their own stories--or, at least, a story--in their own distinctive voices. Most are looking for a break (the Vietnam vet of "Panhandler's Stomp," featuring supporting vocals from David Childers) or holding onto a memory for dear life (the 40-year-old anecdote that drives the excellent "Porter Wagoner"), and they seem to lean on
the kind of wisdom that comes from traveling the backroads
suggested by the album's title. Spreitzer's joined by an impressive collection of Charlotte-area musicians, but by design the mostly acoustic backing never moves beyond jaunty. And that's fine because the folks who inhabit Spreitzer's songs bring their own emotion and electricity."
Rick Cornell - The Music Monitor/No Depression

"Featuring a wealth of artists hailing from his hometown of Charlotte, NC, Spreitzer has produced an album displaying a more-than-competent musicianship and lyrics as evocative as 8mm home movies. The music covers similar ground to Ryan Adams' Heartbreaker and Spreitzer's voice has a similar moody-brooding romanticism to that of Mark Eitzel."
Americana UK

"'s so damn exhilarating to hear a new (to me) local songwriter with his own unique perspective on the elements of life that are truly worth writing songs about. Don't ever turn back. You have the ability to touch people."
