Following a whirlwind year that saw him rise from obscure Austin songwriter to one of the most acclaimed live acts and biggest indie success stories in the country, Shakey Graves continues to build momentum behind his breakthrough album 'And The War Came,' out now on Dualtone Records.
Shakey Graves' (the stage name of Alejandro Rose-Garcia) single "Dearly Departed," which he recently performed live on Conan and The Late Show With David Letterman, has now cracked top 5 at AAA Radio alongside the likes of Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Alabama Shakes, and Florence & The Machine.
'And The War Came' is impressing critics too, including NPR Music's Ann Powers, who named it one of the "Top 15 Albums of 2014," describing Rose-Garcia's intricate compositions as a musical "labyrinth" and his songs as "little magic boxes to fascinate the mind," saying "this album blessed me with mystery...I turn to this music when I want to get lost."
Rolling Stone ran a behind-the-scenes photo story on his "milestone" sold-out NYC show, and Los Angeles Times critic Randy Lewis was stunned after catching a live set, calling Shakey Graves' performance "boundary-pushing," and "electrifying." Esquire declared him "a rising folk hero," and Garden & Gun called 'And The War Came' "one of the year's most astonishing records."
