ABOUT JOSE RAMIREZ

Latin America's Rising Blues Star

At 33 years old, Jose Ramirez is currently Latin America’s most popular blues star and has played with some of the biggest names in the blues industry. These artists include Buddy Guy, Anson Funderburgh, Janiva Magness, Mark Hummel and Bryan Lee, to name a few.

Jose recently signed a contract with world famous blues label Delmark Records in Chicago for the release of his second studio album. This makes him the first-ever Latin-American to ever sign with the renowned record company.

Jose was recently nominated for a Blues Music Award 2021 for his debut album “Here I Come.” It was produced by blues guitar legend Anson Funderburgh.

The Jose Ramirez Band recently won second place at The Blues Foundation 2020 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. The band performed in the finals at the Orpheum Theater in Memphis after advancing to the quarter and semi-finals against over 230 bands from around the world.

In the past couple of years, Jose has traveled the world playing the blues. His two European tours included more than 45 concerts in England, Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium. His U.S.A. tour included shows around the Midwest and the South. Highlights included shows at legendary clubs such as Buddy Guy’s Legends, where Buddy Guy himself joined Jose on stage.

Jose’s debut album “Here I Come” was recorded in Austin, Texas under the production of blues guitar legend Anson Funderburgh. It was mixed by Grammy Award Winner Stuart Sullivan (Jimmie Vaughan, Willie Nelson, Sublime).
