A double EP of b-sides and rarities from Austin's Shakey Graves.

Playing a smoky, spectral fusion of blues, folk, and rock in a stripped-down one-man-band style, Shakey Graves is the stage name of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Alejandro Rose-Garcia. Born in Austin, Texas on June 4, 1987, Rose-Garcia grew up in a family that encouraged his creative pursuits -- his mother was an actress who also worked as a director and writer, while his father managed a theater. Initially, Rose-Garcia followed his interest in acting, working with his high school's drama club and later moving to Los Angeles.

There he appeared in several films (including "Spy Kids 3: Game Over" and "Material Girls"), as well as landing a recurring role on the TV series "Friday Night Lights." But Rose-Garcia also had a passion for music, and he wrote and recorded songs in his spare time. In 2007, Rose-Garcia attended the Old Settler's Music Festival in Driftwood, Texas, and while spending time with friends, they began coining rustic nicknames for one another; someone dubbed Rose-Garcia "Shakey Graves," and the name stuck.
