Shakey Graves- Built To Roam (Live in Lubbock)

It has been awhile since I've heard new material from Austin's Shakey Graves, but I'll take any excuse to post about him. Here is a recent live performance of Built To Roam, off his acclaimed Roll The Bones album, live in a barn at Texas Tech's National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas.
Shakey Graves is the moniker of Austin’s own Alejandro Rose-Garcia. Hailed as one of the best one-man shows in Austin, he captivates audiences with feverish finger picking and dramatic vocals, all while keeping time on a handmade kick drum. A multifaceted artist, Rose-Garcia wrote, recorded, and produced every element of his debut release ‘Roll The Bones’ which received rave reviews. Shakey Graves was bestowed with the distinct honor of having February 9th proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day” by the City of Austin.
