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-Garcia is 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.
