Find Out Why Austin’s Shakey Graves Was Born To Perform

Our Sense of Place: Austin guest today, Shakey Graves, has been described as one of the best one-man shows in Austin. With his finger-picked guitar and suitcase drum he takes over the stage. He put out his full length debut Roll the Bones in 2011 and an EP Donor Blues a year later. He has also spent time chasing acting roles including one in Friday Night Lights. He even moved to LA to pursue roles but ended up spending the time working on his music. It turns out performing is in his blood - his parents were in the theater and he practically grew up on stage. It could be said that he is a born performer.
