Shakey Graves

#sxsw #ShakeyGraves


Listen to Built To Roam

Shakey Graves is being hailed as the best damn one man show in Austin. His set involves a hand made suitcase kick drum and feverish finger picking which follows in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Leo Kottke and Michael Hurley...
Recently, Shakey Graves was named one of the 12 artists of 2012 by KUT 90.5 and has been bestowed with the distinct honor of having FEBRUARY 9TH proclaimed "SHAKEY GRAVES DAY" by the City of Austin!

Shakey Graves is the moniker of Austin's own Alejandro Rose-Garcia.

A multifaceted artist, Rose-Garcia wrote, recorded, and produced every element of his debut release "Roll The Bones" which has received rave reviews worldwide and was listed as one of the top ten albums of 2011 by The Austin Chronicle and Rollo & Grady.
With its jaunty high soaring choral arrangements and twangy finger picked guitar, his recordings have a unique, psychotic, forlorn appeal that has quickly made Shakey Graves a household name from coast to coast.

Listen to his one of a kind road songs, scuffle to his sturdy drinking music, and witness a rustic class act that will blow your boots off.
