David Ramirez + Lucette

  • CAFE NINE 250 STATE STREET NEW HAVEN CT 06510 (map)

It's not easy for a writer to maintain the aura of the unspoken in a song. Music and the space surrounding it intensify the impact of confession; the true challenge comes in giving voice to a narrator who's tongue-tied, or simply reticent. Texas singer-songwriter David Ramirez does so beautifully in the weary not-quite-country ballad "Rock and a Hard Place." The song is about the light at the end of rock bottom. Ramirez speaks for someone who's cogent in his lost state, at peace with the cold insights despair offers him.—NPR
