The Argentine, raised in Sweden, has really melded the best of both musical worlds.  Gonzalez’ music is austere but never cold.  His songs feature a rich, rhythmic acoustic guitar skeleton augmented with soft, intimate vocals. Interestingly, Jose began his musical career in a bands influenced by hardcore punk.  His debut album was released in 2003 and this year came out with a new album – In Our Nature – featuring a cover of Teardrop by Massive Attack, the song made famous as the opening theme, amid his own original works.
