"Musically, Alejandro Escovedo is in his own genre." —Rolling Stone

"Escovedo has blended the lyricism of Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne with the raw power of the Stooges and the Velvet Underground . . . the result is music with heart, brains, and a burning sense of adventure." —Rolling Stone

Crossing borders, jumping barriers, taking risks, betting it all: that’s the path that Mexican American musician, songwriter, and singer Alejandro Escovedo has been taking in his lifelong search for the heart of rock and roll. The son of Mexican immigrants, Escovedo grew up in a family of musicians. His career led him from early punk rock to roots rock and alternative country. Highly respected by peers, critics, and fans, he was named No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade in 1998 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing from the Americana Music Association in 2006.

Escovedo will perform songs from his newest album, The Crossing, which tells the tale of two boys—one from Mexico, one from Italy—who meet in Texas to chase their American rock-and-roll dreams.
