With his crystal-clear singing voice and vibrant, classically-inspired playing, José González is one of today's most remarkable artists - testament to the irrefutable power of one man and a guitar. His debut album 'Veneer' captured his magical sound in its purest state, simply beautiful and beautifully simple. He has since toured the US extensively, selling out shows in every major market. While sonically similar to Veneer, José's recent release 'In Our Nature' shows González' growth as a songwriter. Displaying a heightened emphasis on melody and strong, focused lyrics - the album is a dark combination of softness and anger that is at once mesmerizing, intimate and hauntingly epic.
