I first met José when I was working at Blue Note Records (his current record label). He was and is one of the most astoundingly professional and talented musicians I’ve ever met. I’ll legitimately never forget our first meeting. Four years later José invited me to write on his album While You Were Sleeping and subsequently tour the project for the better part of 2014. It was my first major world tour and was an incredible, life changing experience. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity and for the musical world that José embodies.
