Singer-songwriter Shakey Graves has been called the best one man show in Austin. While that might sound like a bold claim, it becomes completely believable as soon as you see him play live. Alejandro Rose-Garcia, as he’s known when he’s not on stage, has a certain magnetic performance energy. His stripped down folk grabs the audience and doesn’t let them go. The combination of his voice, his skill on guitar, and the steady beat he keeps with his make-shift suitcase drum make for a very engrossing performance.
Shakey Graves visited Studio 1a yesterday and played live on KUTX. Listen to his session right here!
