You can’t find many people with as rich a musical history Alejandro Escovedo. A man with 14 solo albums behind him as well as many others with previous bands dating back to the early 1980s. A career that started with supporting the Sex Pistols at their last ever show to being regarded as one of America’s finest songwriters by Bruce Springsteen and REM’s Pete Buck, who produced his last record, Burn Something Beautifu (The result is a superb rock'n'roll record, bristling with energy and defiance while digging deep lyrically... This is the voice of a man who has stared into the abyss, but thankfully has survived.
Aptly titled, this record burns just so beautifully – Exclaim). A performer with the energy and passion of someone who regards rock and roll as a primeval force. At a time when his contemporaries are contemplating reflecting on past glories and generally taking things easy, Alejandro Escovedo just keeps on keeping on at what he does best – playing and singing as though life depended on it.Website
