Aha Moment: Alejandro Escovedo

Feature

Friday, July 04, 2008

In 2005, the rock songwriter collapsed after a show and nearly died from complications of Hepatitis C. Ill and depressed, Alejandro Escovedo put rock and roll behind him. He told us about the gift that got him singing again. His new album is Real Animal. Produced by Michael May.

So thrilled to see one of my all-time favorties featured! I am a music journalist and a radio DJ, and I listen to a LOT of stuff, from Baroque to Screamo. It takes soemthing really special to grab my attention. Alejandro's new album is my pick of the year so far -- brilliant! I am so relieved he is working through his physical trials.
His live performances are spellbinding -- do not miss Alejandro and his rock n rokk chamber music live -- he will knock your socks off.
