Raul Midón born 14th March 1966

An American singer/songwriter and guitarist from New Mexico now based in New York.
He combines his distinct voice, strumming, beats, and vocal mouth trumpet sounds to create a one-man performance. His unique style shows influence of virtually every musical genre which came before him, including blues, jazz, and R&B

Raul and his twin brother Marco were born prematurely in a rural hospital in Embudo, and after spending time in an incubator without eye protection they were both left blind.

From the age of around 4 Raul became interested in music when his father introduced him to the drum. Then later he learned how to play guitar first at a school for the blind and then at an elite Santa Fe academy while completing his last two years of high school. He then attended the University of Miami where he graduated in 1990.

Raul began his career as a session singer for various Latin artists including Julio Iglesias, Jose Feliciano, Alejandro Sanz and Shakira. He later moved to New York to pursue his solo career.
