  • Shakey Graves

    Alejandro Rose-Garcia, aka Shakey Graves, began making music as part New York City’s ‘anti-folk’ scene. From his earlier career as an actor to playing dive bar open-mic nights around his hometown of Austin, TX, he has moved quickly from obscurity into the national spotlight, critical acclaim and major media attention.

    His first album, Roll the Bones, in 2011 established the powerful, mesmerizing Shakey Graves sound of Rose-Garcia accompanying himself on guitar and a handmade kick drum built out of an old suitcase. Journalists praised the one-man band gnarly blues/folk composite as “astonishing…unclassifiably original.”

    His new record, And the War Came, extends the emotional and sonic ground as it delves into trials and tribulations of domestication, and represent more of what he calls the ‘Cyborg Shakey Graves’ – an evolution from the earlier ‘Mr, Folk, Hobo Mountain’ persona.
