José González

Someone who I have started listening to recently, is José González. I stumbled upon his video for Crosses and instantly became intrigued. He is a Swedish singer songwriter of Argentinean descent. José is not very flashy. He uses very little production, has basic packaging and promotion and does his recordings at home. It seems like he is all about the music and it shows. His songs are very basic and instead of using exotic arrangements, he showcases his songwriting. His album is called Veneer and it has been out since 2003. Helped by his collaboration with Zero 7, he is starting to gain some interest in the states and he's supporting that with a tour. For those of you in Austin, he plays The Parish tomorrow night.
