José González and The Göteborg String Theory
Indie pop artist José González is a little bit of everything, and so is the ensemble he performs with, The Göteborg String Theory. His parents are Argentenian but he was born in Sweden. He writes the music he performs and sings the songs he writes. His influences include Paul Simon, bossa nova, classical music, and Nick Drake. The ensuing sound is as free ranging as the influences but manages to add up to a seamless swath. González and The String Theory are intriguing signposts on music's road ahead.
