My Love Is A Hurricane is Ramirez’s fifth full-length record and eighth collection of songs. Early albums like American Soil (2009) and Apologies (2012) put him on the map both locally and beyond, while his STRANGETOWN (2011) and The Rooster (2013) EPs delivered fan-favorite recordings, “Shoeboxes” and “The Bad Days respectively, that are staple singalongs at his concerts to this day. He made his Thirty Tigers debut with 2015’s FABLES, produced by Noah Gundersen, which features his most widely received single to date, “Harder to Lie.” While this earlier work landed Ramirez firmly in the singer/songwriter canon, a need to do more exploring sonically led to the expansive sound of his most recent album, We’re Not Going Anywhere (2017). Influenced by ‘80s bands like The Cars and Journey, it is lyrically reflective of the country’s intense political landscape framed from his perspective as a bi-racial American of Mexican heritage.
Anna Rose opens the show. For more than twenty years, critically acclaimed songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer Anna Rose has toured the United States headlining powerfully intimate shows and opening for an array of illustrious global acts. Time on the road, and in the studio for her three impassioned full-length studio albums, has honed her song-crafting skills and fueled the storytelling fire that burns within this Nashville-based, New York and LA-raised independent artist. Rose transforms cross-genre influences—which range from classic rock to alternative-indie, pop and country—into concise contemporary tracks built upon dynamic, often bombastic vocals and expert musicianship.
