Truth be told I tend to steer clear of the current popular variety of folk music. More a type of acoustic Emo, de-fanged and navel-gazing, rather than the cunning and adroit poetry of the social (Guthrie) and the emotional (Towens Van Zandt.) There is a recent new wave of folk musicians that has changed my mind and gives me hope for the genre. Stephen Kellogg, Dillon Hodges, Joe Pug and now add to that list David Ramirez.
When I heard Austin-based singer-songwriter David Ramirez’s new song, The Bad Days,” I was immediately taken by the palpable ache of hope against the hopeless. The immediate yearn of the vocals. This man bleeds truth and doesn’t cower from the dark corners of human frailty.
The moody black and white video is directed Rob Montague allows us a view of the hard road and nightly magic a singer/songwriter must endure to share tier craft with few, sometimes indifferent people. Then get up and do it again.
The Bad Days is from Ramirez’s EP, The Rooster which is out now on Sweet World records. it was produced in 6 days by Ramirez and Danny Reisch (Shearwater, Okkervill River, White Denim). - Twang Nation

We’re excited to bring you the advance stream of David Ramirez’s The Rooster, a killer new EP from the popular Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter. It’s the followup to last year’s Apologies, which debuted at #2 on iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts. The highlight? The tightly-harmonized “Forgiven,” which offers a road warrior’s take on the audience-performer relationship. - American Songwriter

It’s one dirge after the next on “Apologies” (Sweetworld), the latest album from the Austin singer-songwriter David Ramirez. That goes for the hopeful songs too, because in Mr. Ramirez’s hands hope is a tool of the doubtful, not the faithful. Take “Stick Around,” the most moving song here, on which he resiliently flips the rolling-stone touring-life narrative into a plea that he doesn’t sound confident will be answered:

Maybe I leave

’Cause I’ve yet to find someone

To look me in the face and say

“Stick around

I want you next to me

So stick around”

Mr. Ramirez is a resolutely hesitant singer, never pushing his hurt, letting it instead decay him from within. He’s studied his early Dylan, and his early Johnny Cash too, though usually all he wants to flaunt is his own haggard loneliness. - The New York Times

The Good. The Bad. The Ugly. We all have our favorite break-up songs and our favorite songs about being in love, but how many deal with the stuff in between? You know, the day-to-day grit of a real relationship. Call these moments The Ugly. Enter Texas singer-songwriter David Ramirez. For several years, he's been making a name for himself in his home state by writing dark, wrenching tales that are immediately identifiable to those who've loved and lost. "The Bad Days," from his EP The Rooster, ranks among the most honest accounts of what it means to be committed to another. In the process, Ramirez speaks truth to love. - npr.org
