Shakey Graves

Shakey Graves is the moniker of Austin’s own Alejandro Rose-Garcia. Hailed as one of the best one-man shows in Austin, he captivates audiences with feverish finger picking and dramatic vocals, all while keeping time on a handmade kick drum. A multifaceted artist, Rose-Garcia wrote, recorded, and produced every element of his debut release ‘Roll The Bones’ which received rave reviews and was listed as one of the top ten albums of 2011 by The Austin Chronicle.

Shakey Graves was named one of the 12 artists to watch in 2012 by KUT, and was bestowed with the distinct honor of having February 9th proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day” by the City of Austin. He’s also held down a residency at the Hole In The Wall, played an official SXSW showcase, and been invited to perform at just about every reputable music venue in Austin.
