ROCK: Americana, BLUES: Rhythm & Blues

“His songs are quirky, fresh, and wonderfully entertaining -- and so is he...an important new artist.”
– Barbara and Scott Siegel, https://www.tradebit.com

Singer/songwriter/bassist Ritt Henn''s third album has been described as “Ritt goes to Memphis,” with its organic, roots-centered grooves laid down by a four-piece band (electric bass and guitar with drums plus Hammond B-3 and Fender Rhodes keyboards) augmented by a mini gospel choir featuring Vaneese Thomas, daughter of Rufus "Walking the Dog" Thomas. Others on the record have played with Rosanne Cash, Deep Purple, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna and Sting.

Ritt is a multi-award winning songwriter and performer, having garnered a Bistro Award from Back Stage magazine as Outstanding Songwriter/Instrumentalist, and a MAC Award for Outstanding New York Debut/Male from the Manhattan Association of Clubs.

"Henn is a find and one of the most original artists of the year."
– John Hoglund, Back Stage

Ritt’s toured the U.S. and Europe, opened for Christine Lavin, Bela Fleck and Soupy Sales, performed on stage Off-Broadway in the twisted musical "Shockheaded Peter," and played with Chuck Berry, Buddy Rich, Martha Reeves and Tom Jones (though unfortunately not at the same time).

"Timber" is an enhanced CD. In addition to the music ("Timber: the album"), there''s the 7-minute film short, "TIMBER: the trailer," a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, with Ritt doing double duty both behind and in front of the camera.

There are also a pair of PDF files: Notes by the Composer, featuring insights into the background of the tunes; and sheet music to the tune "Helen Keller and Me."
