Shakey Graves, “Word of Mouth”, at Audiotree Live
Shakey Graves (born Alejandro Rose-Garcia on June 4 , 1987) is an Americana musician from Austin, Texas, United States.
Shakey Graves was a featured performer at the 2014 Sisters Folk Festival. His music is a cross between blues, country, and rock and roll – he performs at many festivals and concert venues around the United States. Alejandro Rose-Garcia received his iconic stage name at Old Settler’s Music Festival in 2007 after he and his friends jokingly gave each other Indian guide names over a campfire. After an inspired night of playing music, he decided to keep the name.
Shakey Graves became known for his one-man band set up and most of his debut album Roll the Bones is Rose-Garcia playing unaccompanied by other musicians. When he began working on his sophomore album, And the War Came, Rose-Garcia added musicians to his recording set and live set. Three songs from And the War Came are duets with ex-Paper Bird member Esme Patterson. The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Chris Boosahda.
