Born in Bogotá, Colombia, musician, producer, singer, and songwriter José Ayerve grew
up in Springfield, Massachusetts, before relocating to Maine in 1992. He spent the better
part of two decades toggling between Northampton, Massachusetts, and Portland, Maine. His interest in music, performance, travel, and language is buoyed by many years of work
as both a touring musician and a Spanishlanguage translator.
