Coming Full Circle with José González

Reunited five years later at Webster Hall

Story by Chad Kamenshine April 13th, 2015

Back to the Present

In 2010, José González and Junip were part of my first ever “real deal“ portrait session at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. To think that it’s been five years since we last crossed paths (and about everything that has happened in between) completely blows my mind. Besides the growth of his signature mane, José has gone from being the “Heartbeats“ heartbreaker to a soundtrack contributor for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Five years ago, Brooklyn welcomed Junip and in 2015

we get a reintroduction to José González with his latest solo album Vestiges & Claws.
