The All-American Rejects
When Ritter, 21 and 23 year-old guitarist,were formed The All-American Rejects co-songwriter Nick Wheeler were teenagers in 1999. The pair left their Stillwater, Oklahoma homes and trekked to the Big Apple, to record what would be their debut platinum-selling record. They drove across the heartland to New York with less than $1000 between them, but armed with a notebook full of songs and big rock and roll dreams. “I felt like I was in a movie", Ritter says“, Me and Nick drove to New York with all of our Christmas money. It was more than an adventure for kids from Stillwater.
Ritter and wheeler, who mere subsequently joined by quitarist mike kennerty 25 and drummer chris gaylor, 26, toured the world behind the chart-toppping sucess of their debut single "swing swing", initially released on Ohio independent label doghouse records in october 2002, followed by a release on majar dreamworks in february 2003.
