"His voice is ever present. It's always right in your ear, especially on the quieter tracks. He retains this intimacy even on tracks like A Song of Searching Voices, when he's nearly shouting to the heavens, and on Rose when he's singing lead on top of subtle layered harmonies."
- Andy Elliott, Rrampt Winter 2020
"Louder is an original collection of relatable, lyrical themes that point to an artistic maturity beyond Ritchie’s years. His lyrics, sometimes poignant, sometimes care-free, are always poetic. This gifted songwriter’s words will stay with the listener long after the final track."
