San Fermin (pronounced “SAN fur-MEEN”) is the work of Brooklyn-based composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone. His debut album is strongly influenced by his unique background in classical music, which includes a job assisting composer/arranger Nico Muhly. Ludwig-Leone composed all of the album’s arrangements and lyrics in full prior to collaborating and recording, noting that “writing for a large group of unknown musicians infused the writing process with a kind of operatic scope.” Since then, the band has coalesced into a core of eight members, who bring Ludwig-Leone’s sweeping compositions to life on stage.
