José Gabriel González (born July 31, 1978) is a Swedish indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist from Gothenburg, Sweden. González is also a member of the Swedish band Junip, along with Tobias Winterkorn.
My favourite album of 2015 by far is Smoke + Mirrors by Imagine Dragons because I really love indie music, and Imagine Dragons (in my opinion) sets the bar for indie/pop/alt rock music. Their quirky style is something great to listen to, and some of the meanings behind their songs are very great! :)
James Blackshaw (born 1981) is an English, Hastings-based guitarist and pianist. Blackshaw primarily plays an acoustic 12 string guitar and has been compared to Bert Jansch, Robbie Basho, John Fahey, Jack Rose, and Leo Kottke. To enable his fingerstyle playing, Blackshaw has grown long picklike fingernails on his right hand. He has released albums on the labels Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, Static, Digitalis Industries, Important Records, Tompkins Square, and Young God Records.
