Shakey Graves

"Alejandro Rose-Garcia is only slightly less well known than his nom de guerre "Shakey Graves," but those in the know feel like they're in on a very special secret. This Austin native (and talented actor - you may have caught him in his recurring role in Friday Night Lights) is fast developing a reputation as the city's most astonishing one man show. His lo-fi recordings can only approximate his intense, haunting live shows, where he's as likely to be playing to his rapidly growing circle of fans from one of Austin's larger venues as from a front porch stage or an impromptu midnight showcase at a highway underpass.

Shakey Graves is more than just a stage name for a seriously talented flatpicker and songwriter: thanks to his unique blues-infused flatpicking style, a voice that can flicker from a fragile whisper to a startling howl and a pocketful of hook-heavy original songs, Shakey Graves is becoming an antifolk phenomenon even in a city weary of 'next big things.' Unclassifiably original. And frighteningly good."
