2017 was ridiculous. If any year needed the vulnerable and punching thoughts of one of this generations greatest songwriters, it was this. Tackling consumerism, Internet trolls, and racist leaders, Ramirez is at the peak of his art on “Stone Age”. His latest album marks a different direction, but never lacks his incredible artistic integrity that bounces between folk, country, and rock with a conscience.

David Ramirez the Austin-based singer songwriter is preparing to release his new album “We’re Not Going Anywhere”It’s a follow-up to his acclaimed 2015 record Fablesand sees him pitch a message of defiance against Donald Trump’s America.  Ramirez, who has dual American and Mexican heritage, has created an album that is rooted firmly in the present, not the past. “So many cultures in this country are being viewed as un-American and it breaks my heart,” he says. “My family has raised children here and are proud to be a part of this country. Most of what I’ve seen as of late is misplaced fear. I wanted to write about that fear and how, instead of benefiting us, it sends us spiralling out of control.”

Tracks like “Stone Age” bridge the years nicely with his enduring sardonic lyrics sung with his weary and incredible voice.

Ahead of the album’s release, we’re premiering this beautiful video for “Time”, a song which looks at how memories and relationships develop, and features Ramirez’s bandmates Sam Kassirer (producer), Simon Page, Mark Wright, Ari Bernstein and Zach Hickman. 

Ramirez says: “I went into the studio with plans to document our time there and by the second day, after recording most of the song “Time”, I knew I wanted it to be the backdrop for the film. It’s easily one of the dreamiest songs I’ve ever recorded, and framed against the black and white montage of memories from the studio, it comes across with more nostalgia than heartbreak.”
