Shakey Graves - "Family & Genus"
Americana musician from Austin, Texas, Shakey Graves, unearths something beautiful in his down home folk feel.
His music is a cross between blues, folk and rock and roll – he performs at many large festivals and concert venues around the United States. Alejandro Rose-Garcia received his iconic stage name at Old Settler's Music Festival in 2007 after he and his friends jokingly gave each other Indian guide names over a campfire. After an inspired night of playing music, he decided to keep the name.
So today, with photographs like postcards, I choose Shakey Graves' "Family & Genus" as my, forget me not, listen to the memories, hear the truths of your elders, song for a, why not me, let change wash over you, try and try again, Tuesday.
