Shakey Graves Booking Agency Profile

Book Shakey Graves for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Shakey Graves is a singer-songwriter, a one-man-band who plays a gnarly composite of blues and folk. The sound emitted from his hollow body guitar, mildly distorted amp and suitcase drum belie the young singers lean frame. He fingerpicks while keeping time with a double-pedal kick drum, hitting a snare fitted into his suitcase drum and a tambourine fashioned to its side. And when he sings, Shakey Graves unleashes an unearthly howl. His first full-length album, Roll the Bones, landed him a spot as the official busker of the Railroad Revival Tour with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show. Shakey Graves has made appearances on Conan, the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Seth Meyers, SXSW and the legendary Austin City Limits. He was named Best Emerging Artst at the Americana Music Awards, and the Mayor of Austin proclaimed February 9th Shakey Graves Day." .
