Must Listen: Mark Erelli – “The Hitter”

Posted by Greg on Jun 20, 2019 in Music |

Arguably our favorite singer-songwriter over the past two decades has been Boston, MA’s Mark Erelli. An in-demand session and sideman, Erelli is currently about to head out on tour with Josh Ritter’s band in support of Ritter’s incredible new album. He’s also nominated for Song of the Year at the American Music Awards for his critically important “By Degrees,” a song about gun control.

Despite the busyness, that hasn’t stopped Erelli from carving away at new material. His latest single “The Hitter,” is easily one of the best songs he has ever written to date. A timeless yarn about fatherhood and baseball, it is tender, ruminative and open-hearted and at times, quite cinematic.

Erelli has hinted at a new album for a few months now and if the album features more songs like “The Hitter,” well then, it just might be in the running for Album of the Year.
