Raul Midon

Singer/guitarist Raul Midón is a contemporary soul singer whose impassioned acoustic guitar playing -- a mix of rock, classical, and flamenco -- has gotten him just as much attention as his smooth voice. Blind since birth, Midón was born in Embudo, NM, to an Argentine father and American mother. He began playing drums early in his childhood before switching to guitar, taking in flamenco, jazz, and classical styles on his chosen instrument. He relocated to Miami for college in the '90s and while there moonlighted as a background vocalist for Latin pop recording sessions. Midón was a remarkable talent even then, and word quickly spread of his talent as a singer and guitarist. Eventually he relocated to New York, where he concentrated on a solo career. His major-label debut, State of Mind, featuring guest appearances from Stevie Wonder and Jason Mraz, was released by Manhattan Records in June 2005. World Within a World followed in 2007. Midón left EMI for Decca, which released his album Synthesis in 2010. ~ Wade Kergan, Rovi

'Been in love with this artist since 2005 when I heard his sound and had to fly to get his CD! What an outstanding talent! 'Played it so much that I feared wearing it out! 'Never tire of his music!

Caught Raul on the Smooth Jazz Cruise last month and was totally blown away. His recordings can in no way encompass the breadth of his creativity and the depth of his talent. You gotta see him live to get the full impact. I'm truly a new fan.

I heard Raul's music and just fell in love with it. I heard the song Expressions Of Love and it just mellowed my mind. I've been seeking him ever since.

I saw him at a free concert in Detroit. I was on my way to see another artist when I ran up on him. He was in a tent and his music stopped me in my tracks. He was in a tent. I peeked in thinking I was going to see a complete acoustic ensemble, imagine my suprise when I saw this man on stage with just his guitar. WOW!! Safe to say I never got to see the other group! He was mesmerizing. You owe it to yourself to go see this amazing artist the next time he's in your area. You won't regret it!!

Profound lyrical and musical content...a genuine contribution to music! This type of artist rarely exists anymore nor is at least recognized and/or appreciated!

He's amazing! His live performances are phenomenal and i don't understand how such amazing talent could be so hidden

all I can do is second whats already been said... this man is a talent that really, I havn't seen contested in quite sometime... his live performances are simply chilling. Spread the word! this man doesn't get NEARLY enough credit.
