Music Inspiration: Jose Gonzalez

I was been doing a lot of research lately and happened to find this great artist Jose Gonzalez. Is mellow sound set to poetic lyrics is refreshing. It has been hard for me to find music with the a throw back to folk sounds.

My Dad would take me on long canoeing trips and the drive to the rivers were filled with Joan Baez, Tracy Chapman, and Simon and Garfunkel to name a few. That kind of song writing and melodic sound brings be make to my childhood. Its the sound I prefer most of the time strangely enough. It is sometimes amazing to recognize that some of my parents "favorites" are now my own.
