Artist Bio:

Shakey Graves is the stage name of Austin, Texas-based "hobo folk" singer, songwriter, and musician Alejandro Rose-Garcia. Raised in an artistically creative family, Rose-Garciais perhaps better known as an actor, having appeared in several movies, including Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003),Material Girls (2006), and Shorts (2009), and he had a recurring role as part of the television series Friday Night Lights. As a musician using the Shakey Graves moniker, he developed a fascinatingly original alt-folk one-man band approach, and his songs match the approach, original and unpredictable, a kind of ragged melancholic blend of country and blues, with a pop melodic sense and often hauntingly beautiful. He released a debut album, Roll the Bones, in 2011, and followed it with And the War Came in 2014.
