We're Not Going AnywhereAustin-based songwriter David Ramirez will release We're Not Going Anywhere, the follow up to his 2015 breakthrough record Fables and second in partnership with Thirty Tigers.
Most times, when a relationship ends, there is a season of mourning but then the clouds part, the sun rises, and we move on. What happens if and when the sun doesn't rise? What happens if, no matter how hard we try, we can't move on? Ramirez explained about the song.
On the 10 vividly imagined and passionately performed songs on We're Not Going Anywhere David Ramirez takes in the world from his unique perspective: Being half white and half Mexican has made this current political climate especially interesting. So many cultures in this country are being viewed as un-American and it breaks my heart. My family have raised children here, created successful businesses 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 spiraling out control.
For We're Not Going Anywhere, Ramirez partnered with producer Sam Kassirer, who has helmed albums by Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Bhi Bhiman, and many other artists. In January 2017 Ramirez and his band decamped to the Great North Sound Society, an eighteenth-century farmhouse in rural Maine that serves as Kassirer's studio.
It's very secluded, which was part of the appeal. We were able to get out of our touring headspace and stay completely involved with the record and what we were doing, explains Ramirez.
We're Not Going Anywhere turns that distance into a big-picture perspective- engaged and informed, compassionately political but not necessarily partisan. We'd take breaks during the day and watch the news and see all the rallies and marches and the disruption and the out-of-control feeling that was everywhere then-and, frankly, still is now. We were looking around and no one was around us. The closest house was a mile away, so it was just us. We were grateful just to retreat from that social tornado for a while and create something that we hoped would be very beautiful.1. Twins

Fables"Dark, wrenching tales that are immediately identifiable to those who've loved and lost" - NPR Music
"Brutally honest lyrics that bring new meaning to some of life's most difficult questions" - Paste Magazine
FABLES' is a sparse, poignant set of songs crafted around Ramirez' starkly beautiful baritone,
which the New York Times once described as full of "haggard loneliness." In a world
full of singer-songwriters hawking their stories, Ramirez has managed to stand out from the
noise, developing a fiercely loyal following of fans who are drawn to his intimately personal
songwriting. The album's title, 'FABLES,' was inspired by the first single, "Harder to Lie,"
which captures the moment Ramirez realized, as he puts it, "I couldn't bullsh*t with her [my
girlfriend] anymore. She knew me completely. It got me thinking about how much I bullsh*t
in my life - exaggerating stories, faking a smile, or whatever. Just telling fables. When you
don't know who you really are you can end up hurting people."
That newfound maturity and clarity translated into his approach in the studio, as Ramirez
traveled to Seattle to work with his friend Noah Gundersen, who produced the album. "My
previous albums were a bit less personal. I always went in with a certain idea of what I
wanted them to turn out like. I had never just walked in and said 'let's just see what happens.'
And that's what we did this time. From the writing to the recording, it was just based
on instincts."1. Communion

Bright: The AlbumFrom the director of SUICIDE SQUAD and END OF WATCH, David Ayer, comes a new action-packed film starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez and Lucy Fry. The Netflix Film was produced by Ayer, Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless.
Set in an alternate present-day, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (SUICIDE SQUAD, END OF WATCH, writer of TRAINING DAY) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a deadly, thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
