José González "Crosses"
Published Apr 06, 2005Already recognised as an up-and-coming star in his native Gothenburg, Sweden, acoustic troubadour Jose Gonzalez has yet to make his impact elsewhere. Recently signing to Peacefrog Records, Gonzalez has prepared a beauty of a debut single that is sure to spread his name like wildfire. "Crosses" is a simple slice of gently plucked melodic alt-folk that brandishes his heavenly vocals and talent for tenderly lamenting without falling into the trap of becoming just another mopey singer-songwriter.
