Singer-songwriter/producer Richie Quake has joined forces with fellow Brooklyn, NY-based singer-songwriter Anna Shoemaker for their new song, “Crawl”. The new track sees the two critically acclaimed artists, both on the precipice of fame, surrendering to reality as they hunt for satisfaction and success in the city they share.
“People just want to be happy, to feel love, and to be at peace, but everyone goes about that journey in a different way,” Quake says of the song. “No matter which path you decide, there are pros and cons that you have to live with. When you look at life, it can become distorted, and the structures that the mind clings to start to lose their shape, like when you say a word over and over again until it becomes meaningless. But you stay on the ride and hope for the best. Chasing highs, riding lows.”
“Richie and I just want to be artists and make music and I think this song is about how that can be really fucking hard when your worth is based on whether your music goes viral or not ,” adds Shoemaker.
Quake is currently poised to embark on a wide-ranging series of North American live dates supporting Dublin, Ireland rapper Rejjie Snow’s upcoming “By Myself Tour”. Additional dates will be announced.
