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.
