Gig Information

ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO TO TOUR AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME.

Recipient of the AMERICANA MUSIC ASSOCIATIONS LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, the Austin Music Awards TOWNES VAN ZANDT SONGWRITER AWARD and NO DEPRESSION magazines ARTIST OF THE DECADE, the legendary Mexican-American singer-songwriter will tour on back of acclaimed new immigration-themed album The Crossing.

Alejandro (pronounced Al-e-han-dro) Escovedo is one of the most acclaimed songwriters of his generation. His songs have been recorded by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams, Cowboy Junkies, and Calexico, and hes shared stages with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to John Prine to REMs Peter Buck to the Velvet Undergrounds John Cale. Legendary Bowie and T.Rex producer Tony Visconti has produced three of his albums.

A troubadour-like figure with an ever-expanding clutch of classic and evocative songs, Alejandro Escovedo first came to attention in Australia as a member of Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, whose Slash Records debut Sundown found a home in many Australian record collections in the early ‘80s cowpunk days.

Alejandros latest album, The Crossing, released in September 2018 on Yep Roc and one of the most acclaimed of his career, looks at matters of immigration and the broken Promised Land that is America with the lyricism that Alejandro is known for. American Songwriter has called the album “one of the most passionate, relevant, politically charged and personal projects he has released in a career pushing 40 years.
