Austin-based songwriter David Ramirez returns with We're Not Going Anywhere. Produced by Sam Kassirer, the album finds Ramirez painting a vividly imagined picture of contemporary America through the songwriter's own perspective of having dual American and Mexican heritage. It follows Ramirez's breakthrough 2015 album Fables, described by Q as "caked with the grit and dust of an entire lifetime." Musically, We're Not Going Anywhere marks a departure for Ramirez who builds on the rootsy sound of his early albums to create something new and anchored in the present. It's a record informed and driven by Ramirez's own background which identifies both promise and protest at a time of socio-political agitation, "so many cultures in this country are being viewed as un-American and it breaks my heart. 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."
