José González was born in Sweden to Argentinean parents in 1978. In 2003, he released his debut album, Veneer, in Europe. The album has since been released in the UK, on April 25, 2005, and in the United States on September 6, 2005.

The song Crosses, from Crosses EP and the later Veneer, appeared on the finale of the second season of the popular American television comedy-drama The O.C.. His cover of Heartbeats (also from Veneer) was used in a recent Sony BRAVIA TV commercial featuring coloured bouncing balls in San Francisco.

His trademark sound is solo guitar with soft melody. His work, although mostly original, does include acoustic covers of great hits such as Love Will Tear Us Apart, Born in the U.S.A., and Teardrop.

José is one of three members of the band Junip

José González also appears in the recent Zero 7 album The Garden, in which he sings on 3 new tracks and on a reworked version of Crosses.
