11:10 Marty Duda's artist of the week: Jose Gonzalez
Jose Gonzalez’s name reflects his Argentinian heritage, but Jose himself was born in Sweden in 1978. After listening to Latin and pop music growing up, Jose discovered hardcore punk and English folk artists such as Nick Drake. After playing in punk outfits in the 1990s, Gonzalez released his debut solo album, 'Veneer', in 2003. Originally only a Swedish release, the album was eventually released worldwide in 2005 thanks to the single Heartbeats, a song written by Swedish band The Knife and made famous thanks to its use in a TV ad for the Sony Bravia TV. Gonzalez followed it with his 'In Our Nature' album in 2007, then proceeded to release two albums with his band Junip. Jose returns with his third solo album, 'Vestiges & Claws', just out this week.
