Recap: José's backing vocals

José has been an experienced recording artist since the 1970s. 

Recently, Hollandia Music released an eurosceptic carnival track "Neuro van de euro" performed by Dutch entertainer Johan Vlemmix. This satire against the European currency features the background vocals of José Hoebee. The former Luv' singer co-produced the track with her friend Frank Riesenbeck. She has remained very discreet about this anti-Euro song which is different from her public image. A German version of the single entitled "Neuro von der Teuro" has also come out.

The song is also available on Deezer, Bandcamp and Spotify



It's not the first time that José recorded background vocals. In addition to her career with Luv' and her solo efforts, she has also been a backup singer for other artists. In the 1980s, some of her vocal contributions were not credited. Before the Milli Vanilli scandal, it was common practise in the music industry.

Luv' fan Co Rnz helped me to set up a list of recordings featuring José as a backing vocalist. I would like to thank him for his knowledge.
