Shakey Graves debuts video for “Dearly Departed”

Local singer-songwriter Alejandro Rose-Garcia, a.k.a Shakey Graves has been having a very good year. He’s been on tour for the last several months, selling out shows across the country, including a December 27 date at the Scoot Inn. His October release “And the War Came” has been well received by critics and the single “Dearly Departed,” a duet with singer Esme Patterson has been burning up the airwaves. It’s currently a top ten trending song on AAA format radio stations (including Austin’s KGSR 93.3FM and KUTX 98.9 FM.)

The video is a humorous take on the aftermath of a difficult break-up.

If you didn’t get tickets to the Scoot Inn show, don’t fret! Shakey Graves is also on the bill for KUTX’ second birthday bash scheduled to take place at Bass Concert Hall on Jan. 31. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
