Josh Ritchie is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Ontario. Having grown up in the Canadian music scene with a family of music teachers, performers and songwriters, Ritchie has had music in his soul since day one. From the moment he was able to stand Ritchie has been playing anything he can get his hands on. His love for music quickly became an addiction giving the up and coming 22-year-old musical chops and an artistic maturity beyond his age. Then came the voice, quickly developing in choirs and music classes, now having a seemingly endless range and power. Ritchie can go from an intimate whisper to a boisterous roar with unequalled effect. In early 2019 Ritchie took to the studio to record his debut, self produced record "Louder." The album was released to a sold out crowd on August 24th, 2019. The title track Louder was voted on the top 100 list in the 2020 CBC Music Searchlight competition. In the September of 2020 Ritchie was named as one of the Toronto Blues Society's finalists for their annual Talent Search competition where he finished 2nd place. Ritchie released his second studio album "Love at the End of the World" on Sept. 30 2021, with two sold out shows at Heartwood Concert Hall in Owen Sound Ontario and at the legendary Lee's Palace in Toronto.
