Ever since being told by some when he was a child that his blindness meant that "you can't do this, you can't do that," Midón has lived a life devoted to shattering stereotypes. His forthcoming album (to be released in February 2017) has the singer-guitarist adding producer-engineer to his portfolio of talents, with special computer software for the blind enabling him to engineer sessions on his own in his home studio. This project – which includes collaborations with R&B great Bill Withers, singer-songwriter Lizz Wright, Cameroonian jazz bassist Richard Bona and Grammy Award-winning jazz singer Dianne Reeves – underscores why People magazine called Midón "an eclectic adventurist."
