As a solo artist, José González has gained praise for conveying great emotion and nuance from just his percussive guitar and delicate vocals. The new arrangements with experimental chamber orchestra The String Theory gorgeously expand on this effect. From the KEXP Live Room, González and the band perform four sweeping tracks and speak with Cheryl Waters about the process of orchestrating his already beloved compositions. Recorded 04/02/2019
