swedish fashion brand velour asked musician josé gonzález to choose his favourite pieces from the s/s 2013 collection and summed it up in a series of video portraits called the musician. born in gothenburg to argentinean parents who fled the military junta in the mid-1970s, gonzález grew up listening to latin folk and pop music. his own trademark sound is solo classical guitar with a soft vocal melody. the artist is currently planning an album with his band junip and writing his next solo album. when gonzález was shopping for shirts at the velour store in his hometown, he was approached to do this video collaboration.
