Alt-country rock hero Alejandro Escovedo will be performing at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco’s famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992’s acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two.
The release of “Burn Something Beautiful” in October of 2016 was his first solo endeavor since 2012’s highly acclaimed “Big Station”. A highly collaborative affair, Escovedo teamed with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (the Minus 5) to co-write the album’s songs. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, “Burn Something Beautiful” connects repeatedly with Escovedo’s soulful heart and voice at its core.
