José González - Time To Send Someone Away

José González hails from Sweden (didn't see that one coming, did you?). He is of Argentine descent and his parents moved to Sweden 2 years before he was born. To continue the contradictions, although his current music is solo classical guitar with soft vocal melody, his prior musical groups were a hardcore punk band and a rock band.

He recorded his debut album, Veneer, in 2003 while still studying for a PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Gothenburg. His PhD has been put on hold since his musical career has taken off.

Time To Send Someone Away is off his second full release, In Our Nature. González lyrics on In Our Nature were influenced by his reading of books like The God Delusion by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and Practical Ethics by ethicist Peter Singer.
