Desert Atlas is singer-songwriter Mark Ramirez, out of Denver, Colorado. He grew up in the Philippines and moved to the United States at 17, so perhaps it's no surprise that his songs belie a preoccupation with geography, changing landscapes, cities, and seasons. With nostalgia, the strangeness of familiar things, leaving things behind. The songs are invariably short, often on the quieter side. Few repeated choruses. Always with a focus on carefully considered words, whether to convey an emotion or tell a story. Always in search of unique turns of phrase and chord progressions, while remaining grounded, even universal.
