Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Anna Shoemaker has returned with her new single, “I’m Your Guy,” the follow-up to her debut album, Everything is Fine (I’m Only on Fire), released earlier this year. Listen to the song now below.
Co-written with her longtime friend turned collaborator Richie Quake, “I’m Your Guy” is an intimate alt-rock ballad about unconditional love. Throughout the song Anna subverts traditional gender roles and pronouns with lyrics like, “baby if you’ll be my man / I’m your guy / I will get you through your lonely night.” Rejecting the notion of conventional romance and hetero relationship norms, the song advocates for the type of love — with both lovers and friends — where we all have each other’s backs, no matter what.
Anna elaborated on the song, saying, “It’s been made clear over and over again that people in power in our country don’t really give a shit about us, so it’s really up to us to protect and be there for each other.”
Fresh off two shows opening for Isaac Dunbar, Anna will be headlining Elsewhere Rooftop in Brooklyn, NY on July 12th. Tickets are available HERE.
