Following the release of her highly-acclaimed debut album, Everything is Fine (I’m Only on Fire), earlier this year, Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Anna Shoemaker makes her return with her new single, ‘I’m Your Guy.’
Anna co-wrote ‘I’m Your Guy’ 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 elaborates: “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.”
