"His set was rumbling roots-punk guitar gunslinging at its most fierce and hip" Alison Fensterstock, writing about Escovedo's 2014 performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
With over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, Alejandro Escovedo has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation with a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives.
Regardless of the style he plays "everything from his early days with punk band The Nuns (which opened for The Sex Pistols at Winterland) to his work with the post-punk band Rank and File and The True Believers" Escovedo's crafty, intelligent music always goes right to the heart of his audience.
"Escovedo keeps getting better at an age when most artists are on cruise control." Chicago Tribune
