WATCH: Ramblin’ Ricky Tate, “Disconnected”

Feb 13, 2023

WATCH: Ramblin' Ricky Tate,

Artist: Ramblin’ Ricky Tate
Hometown: Birmingham, Alabama
Song: “Disconnected”

In Their Words: “‘Disconnected’ is fresh territory for me as a songwriter. Far removed from my normal rowdy, whiskey-fueled ramblings and verse/chorus format. My songs often come to me in fragments but this one hit more like a flood. Deals with fresh and old wounds that seem to have tangled together into one long hurt. After a while you get numb to certain things but then something comes along to remind you just how it feels. This song is about those different feelings and how we tend to distance ourself from bad memories while we cling to the good ones. The song was recorded live in a cozy setting vs. my normal field recording on-location style due to winter weather. I wanted a warm look and tone to the video since the cold grey weather had been getting me down. In the video I’m playing my new Recording King Tonewood guitar I got from my favorite music shop, Homewood Musical Instrument Co.” — Ramblin’ Ricky Tate
