JPR Presents: José González One World Concert March 8th at SOU Recital Hall

Aug 22, 2015

JPR and the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University present José González and yMusic in concert Tuesday night, March 8th at the SOU Music Recital Hall in Ashland at 8pm.

Awedish singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez creates powerfully austere songs that lead audiences on an introspective sonic journey.  Gonzalez’s intricate fingerpicking backs up his soothing vocals, graceful melodies, adventurous harmonies and evocative lyrics.  Rolling Stone says Gonzalez “can massage your worried mind like Cat Stevens.” His warm, unobtrusive tenor combined with minimal instrumentation and spacious arrangements has come to define his unique voice and remarkable sound making him an international star.

Gonzalez takes the basic elements of an acoustic troubadour's craft and explores their possibilities, not only as ingredients of songs, but as sounds to be enjoyed in their own right. - Marc Hogan, Pitchfork

González‘s new record, Vestiges & Claws, his first in seven years, was produced by González in Gothenburg, Sweden. It consists of years’ worth of musical sketches that in other hands might naturally sprawl wildly in sound and style, but on Vestiges & Claws González has created a collection of songs that cohere just about perfectly, ensuring his position as one of the most important artists of his generation.

Tickets are $39 Reserved / $10 SOU Student w/ID. Tickets are available online HERE, or at the Box Office: 541-552-6348.
