My KUTX : David Ramirez

A few years ago, Paste magazine called Austin’s David Ramirez “the best damn songwriter you don’t know yet,” and they were certainly right, in one respect. Over the course of a handful of albums and EPs, Ramirez has established himself as a premier talent. His style of folk has been praised by critics and (perhaps more importantly) fellow musicians, with Grammy winners the Civil Wars labeling him as “soulful, stirring, heartbreaking.”

Yet his new EP is decidedly more upbeat. The Rooster was written quickly after last year’s full-length Apologies, and it details Ramirez’s new-found love. We’re so honored that David took an hour out of his busy schedule to play KUTX Guest DJ for an hour! Tune in at 6pm on Saturday, September 21 to hear David play some of his favorite tunes.
