The eight-piece live outfit San Fermin joined us a few weeks back for the latest in the 5at5 music series, in collaboration with Bowery Presents and Martin Guitar, where we ask some of our favorite artists to swing by the lobby and play us five songs at 5pm.

San Fermin is led by Brooklyn's own composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone. After finishing his musical studies at Yale, he holed up in a studio on the mountainous border between Alberta and British Columbia for six weeks, composing an album's worth of arrangements and lyrics focused on little things like youth, nostalgia, anxiety and unrequited love. He tied these vast themes to different characters through vocal contributions from longtime friend Allen Tate, as well as Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius.
