This event has passed and sales are now closed
Alejandro Rose-Garcia, known as Shakey Graves, is heading to Australia in 2016, on the back of his new album "And the War Came".
With a voice likened to early Kings of Leon, the Texan one-man-band delivers powerful, absorbing performances accompanying himself on guitar and a handmade kick drum built out of an old suitcase.
'Shakey' has made national acclaim in the USA and ranks near the top of Bandcamp's digital best-seller charts; NPR Music named him one of 10 artists music fans "should've known in 2012," describing him as "astonishing...unclassifiably original, and frighteningly good".
An experienced actor who had a recurring role on Friday Night Lights and appeared in several Robert Rodriguez films, Rose-Garcia started making music as part of New York City's "anti-folk" scene.
He is making fans everywhere he goes now, having played Winnipeg and Newport Folk Festivals prior to a headlining tour, as well as The Late Show with David Letterman & legendary Austin City Limits TV show.
Bluesfest Touring is excited to welcome Shakey Graves to the stage while his remarkable success story continues to unfold.
Get ready for some infectious, mesmerising, good fun at this set!
"Each song burst with relentless energy. Even during gentler songs there was passion in each word sung, his guttural wails contrasting with the dreamy plucking of his guitar" - NZ Herald
"gnarly composite of blues and folk" - Paste
