Thank you very much for the great response on SOMEWHERE, we are pleased about the comments on Hilrant’s and on my site.
As some people have asked about how this project and song came to life...
It starts always with a simple idea...
Jamming with my Ovation a few simple chords, added some Bass, Drums, Piano and strings (NI). Just a rough version of the track.
Monty Johnson is not only an outstanding lead guitar player and collaborator, so I sent him the idea and he accepted to play.
Being a great fan of Hilrant, his work and particular excite voice, Hilrant and me have been in contact before and talked about a collaboration. So I asked if he liked the idea and he was happy to sing and write as well the lyrics.
Monty’s awesome play on one site and Hilrant’s voice, phrasing and lyrics on the other...so finally I worked out 5 different versions....two great artists, a real challenge...
Facing some technical problems, we agree to work on version 4, which finally was slightly modified and became...SOMEWHERE.
Grateful about Monty’s wonderful play, shorten for song reasons (it still hurts my heart), Hilrants outstanding voice and these deep lyrics, they have inspired my work.
As I said before...two great artists.
Should the song sounds different from one to the other site, my version of SOMEWERE has a different Equalizer setup...this Rnation player is driving me crazy...
Thank you for your interest, plays, likes and comments on all sites.
Have a good time
This Rock song count on the collaboration with one of the most excited voices on Rnation, Hilrant, and the lead guitar of "Magic hand" Monty Johnson. Hilrant, apart of delivering an awesome vocal part, wrote as well the fantastic lyrics. Monty showed again his amazing feeling on the guitar and so the song began to grow adapting his final version which we have the pleasure to present to you. We have put all our heart, soul and feeling on this song which we hope you will like. Thank you for your comments and likes on behalf of us all.
Fernando Garcin is one of the most outstanding voices for me on Rnation. His peculiar style reminds often on LEONARD COHEN. When he accepted to join this project I was very happy as together with one of my favorite guitar player, Monty Johnson, I was sure to create a very special mood on the song. Hope you like it.
This WORLD-DANCE fusion track was originally composed and recorded on 2007 but now I found the time to remix the track. Hope you like it. Thanks for your listens and comments. Always love José
Wish you all a happy new year 2014
The last year has been very excited and I am happy to have found new friends and partners on Rnation. On the other side my job got me more and more envolved. So my business trips around the globe and my family have catched my full attention as music is a passion but not my profession :-)
Apart of having composed two new tracks and arrangement like I WILL and GOOD VIBES, I passed along the last 10 years and found a lot of tracks I loved and decided to share with you. So SLIP AWAY (2002) and FUSION (2004) have enrich my song list on my main page. At same time I have added to my SOUNDCLOUD and MYSPACE page as well some older tracks.
On the other side I have created on 2013 two new projects on RNATION as tons of unreleased material invited to share as well different songs and genres with you. And your interest, fanship and comments on these sites have shown that I was right.
There are always projects you start but due to circumstances they are postponed or finally are cancelled.
For sure are the instrumental version and new guitar play of CISNE NEGRO and my friend and fantastic guitar player Arjyo Bala
If you don't know him I suggest to visit his site and have a listen to this incredible guy.
As well this new year I have the honor to count again on the contribution of another amazing gyitar player and good friend, Monty Johnson.
Together we will have some projects this year and a new track is right now on work. This new track will include a surprise male singer from Spain which I personally admire a lot......more info will come soon, you never know who this will go on :-)
Still on work is a DANCE track with a female singer I invited for a collab and I hope this year we will have the pleasure to present you our work.
On my list of wishes are projects with some great female singers I discovered this year and to explore new genres...but this is still only in my heart and head....
Hope you will like and love the works and that these will be of your pleasure.
Thank you for let me be part of your musical life and your interest on collabs. Please feel free to contact me if you wish and would like to work on a song, I'm always down for a collaboration and new experience.
Have a wonderful creative new year 2014.
Dear Rnation family,
Christmas is coming closer and soon another year will be over.
2013 has been a very hard year and although we should see always the positive side there have been as well very sad and difficult moments.
Your support and friendship has not changed and gave me comfort, strength and hope to go on with regard to my music.
Therefore I take this opportunity to thank you from all of my heart for being there, for your words and your constant support.
I always have tried to return all the love you granted to me and whatever you might need, please feel free to contact me.
So from today until January 6th, which is the real Christmas day in Spain (and my birthday) my special thanks for you is the free download of some of the most liked songs, starting with IT'S A SHAME.
Thank you, muchas gracias, from all of my heart I wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas time and great start into the new year 2014.
Dear Rnation friends and family, I hope this song will transmit you the good and positive vibes we have to keep and share on this steadily changing world. Peace, Love and Respect to you all.
Hello my friends, thanking you for your constant support which means the world to me, I take the opportunity to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving day an weekend. May you spend these days in harmony and love with your beloved and share these wonderful moments with people who might not have the same luck. This is the real spirit of Thanksgiving...With all my Love, José
Dear Rnation friends, being upset with the Sound quality on Rnation which has become worse, I was forced to upload this track again. Thank you for your comments and likes for the ancient version, hope you like the new one as well.
Would you please take a minute to comment about the sound of the song you are listening to. This will help to improve and repair the sound damage the Rnation player is causing to my work. To present you good songs in good quality is my purpose....Thank you very much, I really appreciate your gesture.
