“It all comes beautifully from her soul” Michael Herman
Rich vocals that blend with guitar – Jose delivers an act that works both in an intimate acoustic setting or on a large stage. Songs, both classic and contemporary are distilled, filtered through the “coals” of experience and emerge anew with a touch of character.
Jose loves to sing and credits this to the influence of his mother for whom music was an integral part of daily life and his uncle who was passionate about folk, country and sixties music – this has remained with him today. Jose regularly plays guitar and sings, in acoustic venues in Melbourne’s East and South-East and is keenly exploring Melbourne’s music scene after returning to Victoria after many years absence working around Australia.
As well as Bob Dylan and John Denver songs, Jose plays a mix of traditional music and contemporary numbers including originals. Jose believes music is for everyone, not just popstars and is something we can all actively be part of.
