Northern California’s Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, dishes, black holes and hope. An award-winning and prolific songwriter characterized as “here and now” by The Observer, she’s recently released her seventh album, For Real. Her stories, songs and soul-stirring, country-folk voice are partnered with longtime collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Sean Feder on dobro, banjo and guitar. Together, they deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.”

What the critics say

"Timeless, unhurried elegance,"—Acoustic Magazine

“Her breed of Nor Cal country folk ain’t quite old-timey, and it ain’t quite bluegrass, but damn it’s sweet. For fans of Emmylou and Gillian, this one's a safe bet. The songs of Rita Hosking are as fragile as a newborn baby, and defiant as a West Virginia coal miner.” —Stuart Mason, Fiddlefreak Folk Review
