David Ramirez writes melodic, brooding songs of love and life, delivering them with perfect pitch and regret. Young,but hopeful despite his well-worn scars. His work is profound and accessible. His third LP, 2015’s Fables, went underappreciated due to the success of labelmates on Thirty Tigers that year. The disc’s quality holds, though, plaintive balladry caught in the Austin troubadour’s gently quivering croon and immense lyrical talent that draws emotion from the smallest details and intimate moments . David’s 2017 critically acclaimed album We’re Not Going Anywhere finds Ramirez painting a vividly imagined picture of contemporary America through the songwriter’s own perspective of having dual American and Mexican heritage.
