Personalities | Jon Dee Graham | Alt. Country & The Bluegrass Revival

(Vocals, guitar, b. 1959)

Graham was, like Alejandro Escovedo, an alumnus of The True Believers, who found in alt.-country an effective catalyst for fusing his Mexican-American childhood and his punk-rock youth. With a rumbling baritone not unlike Tom Waits’, Graham wrote haunting songs about real despair and possible redemption on such albums as 2002’s Hooray For The Moon and 2004’s The Great Battle. Graham was also a member of the legendary Austin band The Resentments with Stephen Bruton and Scrappy Jud Newcomb.
