Album Notes
“In scorching form” (UK Telegraph), Northern California’s Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope. From NPR’s Weekend Edition to Bob Harris’s BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, “a captivating performer,” (R2 Magazine.) A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.

Rita’s style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised for capturing the audience. Honors include winner of the '08 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in the '09 Telluride Troubadour Contest, and many more. Her records have earned Best Country Album Vox Pop in the 2010 Independent Music Awards, No Depression’s Top 10 “Young Female Artist releases for 2011”, “Hidden Gem” lists by the UK’s Observer, and “Top 10 Country Albums of 2013” by the UK’s Telegraph. Three successful collaborations with producer, engineer and guitarist Rich Brotherton (Robert Earl Keen, Caroline Herring) led Rita to happily return again to Rich’s studio in Austin, Texas to make a fourth.

The new record, Frankie and the No-Go Road, stands tall with Rita’s impressive folk-Americana discography. But dig deeper, and the listener may find another realm of experience in this collection of twelve songs that carry us on a sojourn of the soul. “A bold revitalization of the American spirit as seen through the hero’s journey.”
