Get: Tickets | Directions

Singer/songwriter Josh Rouse moved from Nashville to Spain five years ago, and his jump across the Atlantic has influenced his folky style. On his newest album, El Turista, global rhythms, especially those of Latin origin, infuse many of the songs, such as the Paul Simon-esque "I Will Live on Islands." Bouncing along with an easy Afro-Cuban rhythm, this upbeat tune blends American poppiness with cosmopolitan groove.
