“A free man beyond any category” (Huffington Post) best describes the unique musician that is blind singer /songwriter guitarist Raul Midón. His brilliant soul pop jazz vocals, remarkable song writing and show stopping flamenco and jazz guitar stylings have critics comparing him to Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Donny Hathaway.
His singular timeless soul pop jazz sound garnered him a standing ovation during his television debut on Letterman and an open invitation back to Leno following his appearances there. This talented, mesmerizing genre-defying artist has travelled the globe from India to Indiana spreading the message that you can do it, you can be yourself and be recognized and be bold.
With three major label records under his belt “State of Mind,” “A World Within A World,” and “Synthesis” and countless appearances both on television worldwide and on other artist’s records he is a pro and more a part of the musical landscape than you might realize. People Magazine calls him an “eclectic adventurist” and the New York Times an “unreconstructed hippy.” Guitar magazine describes him as “One of those rare musical forces that reminds us how strong and deep the connection between man and music can sometimes be.” Midón will delight you with his wit, his musical virtuosity all a result of his dedication to being the best he can be.
“…a one-man band who turns guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus….” – New York Times
