Juan Carlos Ureña was born in San José, Costa Rica. He began playing the guitar and writing songs in his early teens, and was representing Costa Rica in International Festivals by the time he turned 17. Over the past 25 years he has continued to represented the country of Costa Rica in international music festivals in Cuba, Moscow, Spain, Holland, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, Tahiti, and the United States.
Juan Carlos is known for his music as a soloist, as the lead singer of the Costa Rican band Oveja Negra, as well as a duo with his wife Jeana Paul-Ureña, a musician originally from Texas. Combining guitars, mandolin, piano, harmonica, and Latin percussion with beautiful harmonies, the Ureñas write, compose, and perform poetic songs fused with Caribbean and South American rhythms, folk, jazz, and pop. They have recorded 11 albums of original music and have contributed songs to numerous music collections in the United States (Putumayo World Music), Latin America (First Generation Records), and Europe (Igolves).
