Album Notes
“Nobody’s Baby,” the second single off Richard Cortez’ upcoming EP, The Welder & The Lark, marries subtle doo-wop nuances and a lone guitar with Cortez’ warm, crooning baritone voice. A humble, earthy percussion section drives the rhythm on this moody groove using sampled, natural sounds generated by the guitar itself and a classic finger snap.

With timeless lyrics like, “I don’t wanna be nobody’s ‘honey,’ but you drink my whiskey, spend my money, and when my love’s run out? You’re no where to be found,” Cortez’ draws inspiration from classic torch songs—originally sung by women whose lovers have “done them wrong.”

With swirling, layered background vocals by fellow queer singer-songwriter, Boy Radio, and an earnest vocal performance by Cortez, “Nodody’s Baby” is a genuine attempt to merge openly gay lyrical content with a genre of music written before the gay rights movement began.
