Victor Herrero

In 2007 Victor met his musical partner the US artist Josephine Foster, and they began to collaborate and perform together in concert as well as in the recording studio. He plays lead guitar on her disc “This Coming Gladness” (Bo’Weavil Recordings, 2008) as well as on her two last solo albums; “Blood Rushing” (Fire Records, 2012) and “I ́m a Dreamer” (Fire Records, 2013).

In 2009 he released his second solo album "Anacoreta" (Bo’Weavil Recordings, 2009), an instrumental collection of his compositions written for Spanish guitar. The music embodies different styles which have all formed a part of his experience; classical, folkloric and contemporary threads all united under the strong influence of traditional Andalusian music.

In 2010 the UK label Fire Records released "Anda Jaleo” recorded by his folkloric ensemble with his companion “Josephine Foster & Victor Herrero Band”. A collection of popular traditional songs collected and harmonized by the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca in 1930, these piano scores and recordings were the inspiration for this new recorded version made by Victor and Josephine.

With this same ensemble in March 2012 Fire Records released “Perlas” a new collection of Spanish folkloric songs. The collection included traditional as well as original songs arranged and composed by Josephine and Victor.
In summer 2012 the label Foehn Records of Barcelona released “Tiempo para la Cosecha”, an album by Viva, a project created by Victor with the Spanish musician Israel Marco and Togolese percussionist Gamal Seya. The music is based in the traditional African rhythms. In 2014 Victor Herrero released his third solo album “Estampida”. A collection of original songs written in Spanish, they take inspiration from the music and poetry of Spain and Latin America. This record has been released by Foehn Records and Windbell Records Japan.

During the last couple years Victor has been involved in many different projects and journeys.
At the beginning of 2017 the US label Feeding Tube Records releases his fourth solo album “Astrolabio”. An instrumental and experimental record on Portuguese guitar.
