Recently described as an "antifolk phenomenon" by NPR Music, Alejandro Rose- Garcia (aka Shakey Graves) is one of those rare artists whose music, after one listen, inspires the kind of obsessive devotion that compels someone to spend hours searching for more. Fans eagerly wait for the next track to surface online, erratically released from his closely-guarded collection of unheard bedroom recordings and live rarities. But as word of his haunting, at times bizarre, lo-fi recordings and contrastingly explosive live shows continues to spread, Shakey Graves is quickly rising from obscurity into the national spotlight. His debut full-length LP "Roll the Bones" consistently remains near the top of Bandcamp's digital "best-seller" charts more than two years after its release, relying on little more than word of mouth for promotion. New listeners around the world discover his music every day, often through a series of stunning live performance videos on YouTube, which have collectively racked up well over half a million hits.
