Shakey Graves is the post-folk alter-ego of Austin, TX artist Alejandro Rose-Garcia. His southern, old-world sound is completed by frenzied finger-picking and a homemade portable suitcase drum kit. Between sensible balladic moments gnarly, unconstrained guitar tones wail and screech out his ragged guitar.
A master of storytelling, he focuses intently on the correct verbage to spin a tale. Drawing references from literature, folklore and his own life connects Shakey’s music to listeners across generations. A signature hat, wife-beater and proper boots is the uniform of choice for the incredible one man show: Shakey Graves.
