SHAKEY GRAVES

“Every few years [at SXSW], an Austin act picks up steam just in time to enjoy

the home court advantage. This year it’s a bluesman, Alejandro Rose-Garcia,

who makes the one-man band approach look effortless.”

- The New York Times

Recently described as an “antifolk phenomenon” by NPR Music, Alejandro Rose-

Garcia (aka Shakey Graves) is one of those rare artists whose music, after one

listen, inspires the kind of obsessive devotion that compels someone to spend

hours searching for more. Fans eagerly wait for the next track to surface online,

erratically released from his closely-guarded collection of unheard bedroom

recordings and live rarities.

But as word of his haunting, at times bizarre, lo-fi recordings and contrastingly

explosive live shows continues to spread, Shakey Graves is quickly rising from

obscurity into the national spotlight. His debut full-length LP “Roll the Bones”

consistently remains near the top of Bandcamp’s digital “best-seller” charts more

than two years after its release, relying on little more than word of mouth for

promotion. New listeners around the world discover his music every day, often

through a series of stunning live performance videos on YouTube, which have

collectively racked up well over half a million hits.

In his hometown of Austin, TX, Shakey’s shows are the stuff of legend. Recently

featured on the cover of Austin Monthly Magazine, the Mayor has even given him

his own local holiday. February 9th is officially proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day”

in Austin.

Shakey Graves has a huge year ahead of him, including nationwide tour dates,

festival bookings and an upcoming live album release. He’s also putting the

finishing touches on his sophomore studio album, with a release date TBA.

    Folk

    Seattle's Lydia Ramsey is a talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and has been praised for the almost vintage quality of her voice. Her songs convey both the wildness and free nature of traditional folk music and feature melodic fingerpicked-guitar backing up her beautiful voice. She has recently released her first full length LP entitled, Bandita.  "This album is brilliantly constructed with tons of folk, Americana and southern country influences that meld seamlessly into a storyteller’s musical odyssey."  Aaron Mannari, Lemonade Magazine

    "The haunting vocals and melodies make this album a must own record." Earle Dutton, Equality 365

    The album's first single, "Ghosts", is a wonderfully southern-inspired folk tune that showcases Lydia's natural fingerpicking guitar ability, her banjo playing and her lovely vocal harmonies.  “Ghosts” debuted last month on NPR's First Watch.

    Last month, “Show Me The Stars” and “Shake Me” from Bandita were featured in KEXP's Song of the Day and Music That Matters Podcasts.  Bandita has ranked in the top 5 of their Americana charts for 6 weeks in the row.
