Rita Hosking is an American composer and musician based in Davis, California. She plays Americana and bluegrass styles of music with both standards and original songs. Rita's latest work, a 2018 album titled For Real, was called "her best yet" by legendary bluegrass DJ and Rita fan, Eric Rice of KVMR. California's Fiddlefreak Folk Review has this to say about the collection: "With these songs, she has put her finger on the pulse of America by addressing some of the issues that face us today: fake news, racism, homelessness, environmental destruction, and the disconnects created by rampant technology. The triumph of For Real is that these tragedies do not overcome her." A favorite from the record, Rita's tune "California" is embraced by the California Wilderness Coalition as their theme song.
