If you like Springsteen, Tom Petty or any legendary rock stars of that ilk, you’re going to love the music and vibe of Alejandro Escovedo. Few folks this side of Neil Young or Gram Parsons are cited as often as he is when it comes to artists vital to the melding of rock and twang. An Americana Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Escovedo has been and continues to be a critically influential figure in modern American rock and roots music. As Rolling Stone puts it, “To call Alejandro Escovedo the godfather of modern country rock would sell him short.” Alejandro’s newest album, The Crossing (2019) tells the tale of two boys, one from Mexico, one from Italy, who meet in Texas to chase their American rock and roll dreams. They discover a not-so-welcoming, very different place from the Promised Land they imagined, with cameos from the likes of Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Joe Ely and James Williamson of the Stooges to show the boys the way.

If you like Springsteen, Tom Petty or any legendary rock stars of that ilk, you’re going to love the music and vibe of Alejandro Escovedo. Few folks this side of Neil Young or Gram Parsons are cited as often as he is when it comes to artists vital to the melding of rock and twang. An Americana Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Escovedo has been and continues to be a critically influential figure in modern American rock and roots music.

As Rolling Stone puts it, “To call Alejandro Escovedo the godfather of modern country rock would sell him short.”

Alejandro’s newest album, The Crossing (2019) tells the tale of two boys, one from Mexico, one from Italy, who meet in Texas to chase their American rock and roll dreams. They discover a not-so-welcoming, very different place from the Promised Land they imagined, with cameos from the likes of Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Joe Ely and James Williamson of the Stooges to show the boys the way.
