Shortly after moving from NY to Austin a few months ago I started poking around the local music scene to see what's good in town. One of my very first finds was the one man wonder known as Shakey Graves. For those unfamiliar with him, he's a bit of an old throwback, a rare talent of sorts, and a real performer if you've come across his live work. Armed with just his guitar and suitcase drum kit he delivers an intense blend of soul, blues, and gritty rock that just plain ol' leaves me speechless.
He's most definitely one of my must see acts here at SXSW. Get familiar with a few of his tracks below and visit his website for all his upcoming appearances.
