David Ramirez is set to hit the road in the UK this week on January 12 for a nine-date tour. To coincide with the tour, he has shared a stripped back take on his recent single ‘Watching From A Distance’

This particularly poignant take embellishes the track’s more delicate moments and further asserts Ramirez’s way with words and emotions, particularly on this song which acknowledges the distancing rift between lovers. Upon initial release earlier this year, David’s fourth album received praise from Q, Uncut, The Independent and Folk Radio UK .  Ramirez is “an acute observer of the fractured state of the nation, its lost souls and lost ideals but even as he sees discord, he is hopeful for the future…” His album “We’re Not Going Anywhere”  is now due for its UK commercial release on January 12th falling in-line with his UK tour.

“Soulful, stirring, heartbreaking. David makes you hang on the turn of everyphrase.” 

“The best damn songwriter you don’t know yet” – PASTE

“One of Americana music’s great undiscovered songwriters” – Austin Monthly


Ramirez – who comes from a unique perspective of having a dual Mexican and American heritage – wrote We’re Not Going Anywhere as a response to anger and defiance towards the American political landscape. Whilst holed away in a barn-turn-studio in Maine earlier this year, miles from anybody else, Ramirez and his band felt geographically excluded from the politics but via social media and television, heavily engaged, informed and not necessarily partisan.
