On this week’s Latin Factor podcast, Billboard editor Leila Cobo presents a deep conversation with the Spanish singer-songwriter José Luis Perales.
The conversation begins with Perales sharing stories about his early days as a composer. “My first song was so bad that I never sang it to anyone," he says. But he perfected his passion for music while writing songs anywhere. “I hid in the broom room [at school] with the guitar.”
Perales doesn’t like to be called legendary. ”To be honest, [it] sounds bad -- I would say that I am a constant person of stories with age.”
