Download “Unlucky Skin” by Shakey Graves (playing the TLA 11/16)
The Austin, Texas based songwriter and singer Shakey Graves works in a lo-fi folk music way. He’s a rich storyteller, a flat picking acoustic guitar player, stomps on a suitcase for a drum, has a whiskey soaked voice and nods to the blues. Graves’ real name is Alejandro Rose-Garcia, brings fresh ideas and energy to the new traditional music scene, and like The Avett Brothers, the Felice Brothers, and JD McPherson, he’s an engaging live performer. Graves performs this Saturday, November 16th at the TLA with The Devil Makes Three. Go here for tickets and more information. Below, download “Unlucky Skin,” from his album, Roll The Bones.
