"Set The Table" Review: Ritt Momney discusses the pitfalls of co-dependency in his latest release

Ritt Momney - Set The Table

Ritt Momney is the solo project of 21-year-old Salt Lake City native Jack Rutter. Beginning as an indie rock band composed of high school friends, the project became a personal outlet for Rutter after his bandmates left on Mormon missions and his girlfriend left for college. In his bedroom, he wrote, recorded, and produced his debut LP, entitled “Her and All of My Friends”, in which Rutter grapples with loss, loneliness, and a drift away from Mormon culture.

Today, indie/alternative singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Ritt Momney has shared his latest song “Set The Table” via Disruptor/Columbia Records (RCA in the UK). Listen HERE. Produced by Palehound’s Ellen Kempner, the lively track features fellow recording artist phenom Claud and is an instant anthem for those who may feel like a disruptor within a family/household.

In speaking about the song, Ritt says: “It’s kind of about feeling like you’re disrupting a relationship or a family dynamic and you don’t know how to stop. I guess I pulled from feelings of being ‘the problem child’ when I was younger. And kind of now too lmao.

Set the Table” follows “Not Around,” Ritt’s first solo offering since the 2019 release of his debut album Her and All of My Friends, which dropped in February. Both tracks will be featured on Ritt’s forthcoming sophomore album expected later this year and follow the steady success of his cover of Corinne Bailey Rae’s Put Your Records On. The Salt Lake City native’s viral rendition of the Grammy-nominated smash has amassed over 375M combined streams worldwide to date and is currently #3 at Pop Radio and Top 10 at Adult Pop.

The Indie Rock track “Set The Table” displays more of Ritt Momney’s destructive traits.

And over an ever present guitar riff and gentle drum pattern he can be seen to use his friend as a crutch for his own instability; in spite of the tumultuous environment he references them to be clouded by. These sentiments are present from the offset as Ritt brings attention to both his dependency on them and the taxing nature of it “Yeah, what a shame I need everything that I haven't got / You give me all that you can but it's not quite enough
