DAVID RAMIREZ (US)

Den amerikanske sangskriver spiller inderlig Americana og har så absolut noget på hjerte. ”Mange kulturer i dette land bliver betragtet som uamerikanske, og det skærer i mit hjerte.” Ordene kommer fra David Ramirez som er halvt mexicaner og mærker på egen krop den stemning, der er i USA i øjeblikket.

Han har udgivet 4 albummer, de to seneste og mest spændende er ”Fables” (2016), og ”We’re Not Going Anywhere” (2017).

David Ramirez besøgte Tønder Festival i 2018 med sit band og nu er vi så heldige at få ham til Odense.

”Where were you, when we lost the Twins? Where we’re you when the fear settled in?” / “There she goes – Goodbye America” – Fra sangen ”Twins” – der indleder albummet ”We’re Not Going Anywhere” 2017.

“David Ramirez has a voice like a tall tale, one minute strong and thick, the next threadbare and careworn”. – STEREOGUM

David Ramirez is an amazing songwriter who knows how to turn heartache into beauty. I feel like I’ve been through his breakups and they’re HIS breakups. That’s some good writing”. – Matt Reilly, KUTX

“The heartbreaking, anthemic lyrics and erratic electric guitars of ‘Twins’ squarely place We’re Not Going Anywhere among the year’s essential LPs”. – Apple Music

“If Springsteen made a record about living in Trump’s America, you’d hope it might sound something like ‘We’re Not Going Anywhere” – Uncut

“Ramirez has long been a respected figure amongst those in the know, but We’re Not Going Anywhere establishes him as a forceful troubadour well deserving of the same big audiences of his peers”. – Glide Magazine
