Shakey Graves - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt
Alejandro Rose-Garcia has covered a lot of ground in his young life. An aspiring actor with a deep-seated love for songwriting, he initially spent a few years living between Austin and Los Angeles, while pursuing an acting career. There were some notable successes, including a recurring role on the TV series “Friday Night Lights," which provided him the means to move to New York. Once here, Rose-Garcia found his way to the Monday open mic nights at the SideWalk Cafe in the East Village, where he dubbed himself Shakey Graves. He became a one-man band and soon recorded his 2012 low-fi folk debut, Roll The Bones, in a friend’s Brooklyn apartment.
