I’d like to marry this man.  Something about his voice and gentle strumming of his guitar puts me at ease unlike any other musician.  I’m also positive that seeing him play with Junip at Bonnaroo a few years back changed my life.

Also, he’s Swedish, which is Sweet-ish.  Stop it

Might I suggest for your listening pleasures:

Solo–Down the Line, Heartbeats

Junip– Without You, Your Life Your Call and Line of Fire, which are a pair of music videos, super creepy and awesome, surrounding an old man’s relationship choices.  oOoooOoooOOo

These here drawings are what happened when I listened to the above (+ some) Jose/Junip play for an hour in my earbuds.

I hate when people say “I like music” because I feel like everyone should like music…

However, I am aware that not everyone is SUPER in to it like the 3 people I have elected to create a playlist for you lovely readers every Tuesday from here on out.

Brianna Buckingham- a Maryland native who only loves her dogs more than her tunes

Joe Egbers- chiming in from Charlotte, he listens to music to save himself from accounting

“Hunt Daddy” aka Hunter Miller- you can tell how much he loves America from his tunes

Read our conversation to get a little more info on these special specimens…. I assure you, you will laugh.
