José Luis Montón




“NoI can not imagine a more complete musician than José Luis Montón.
He makes everything he plays beautiful and sharing the stage with him is a
gift of life. The sounds he transmits with his guitar get straight to the soul.”

Ara MalikianMusician

One of the best, for his ability to thrill, his unique and recognizable sound, his beautiful melodies, his hability to sound flamenco even when merging with other music and sounds ... For me, the very best.

Clara MontesSinger

Unlimited emotional capacity, that's what Montón has. And this is what gives his touch a romanticism and unusual expressive force. He is freedom, practicing and empowering his own peculiarities as if it were his religion.

Mayte MartinSinger

The choice of Montón is always intimacy, sensitivity to the skin, the human being, the musician, acting as a mirror of a crowd, of the whole humanity. Montón does not say, nor does he mean, what he has heard from others before.

Juan VergillosJournalist

José Luis Montón belongs to that constellation of artists in which genius and sensibility in the compositions come together, virtuosity in the playing, and this generosity so typical of the greatest.
