    Alejandro Escovedo

    Mexican-American singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo got his start in the most auspicious of ways: as a member of cult-fave punk rock group The Nuns. Escovedo was immersed in the punk scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s, opening for The Sex Pistols and John Cale, and living at the Chelsea Hotel during the Sid and Nancy days. Director Jonathan Demme, who’s producing Escovedo’s upcoming biopic, says, “Alejandro is an abstract expressionist historian of his and our past, of emotion and desire."

    Escovedo’s style has since expanded and evolved; Rolling Stone’s Mark Kemp likens him to Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne backed by the raw power of the Stooges and the Velvet Underground. Not content with a singular form of expression, Escovedo recently partnered with playwrights Theresa Chavez, Eric Gutierrez and Rose Portillo for the theatrical production By the Hand of the Father, a work based on his father Pedro Escovedo. His new album Big Station (Fantasy/Concord) is out now.
