Alejandro Escovedo (born January 10, 1951, in San Antonio, Texas) is a Mexican-American rock musician, songwriter, and singer, who has been recording and touring since the late 1970s. His primary instrument is the guitar. He has played in various rock genres, including punk rock, roots rock and alternative country, and is most closely associated with the music scene in Austin, Texas. He comes from a well-known family of musicians.

Escovedo wrote these songs in collaboration with Italian rock musician Antonio Gramentiere, with Gramentiere and his band Don Antonio providing the backing, and the partnership proves to be inspired, with the musicians tackling the multiple influences and shifting moods of this music with passion and aplomb. And Escovedo has brought in some impressive guests for these sessions, including Wayne Kramer of the MC5, James Williamson of Iggy & the Stooges, Peter Perrett and John Perry of the Only Ones, and Joe Ely (who lends harmonies to a beautiful cover of his song "Silver City").

Dressed in a black suit and black cowboy boots with a cravat tucked into his shirt collar, he casts a wary glance around the room where he and his band are about to play an in-store performance. His new LP, The Crossing, which came out in September on Yep Roc Records, is a sprawling concept album about two immigrants. One, named Salvo, is from Italy, and the other, Diego, is from Mexico. Antonio Gramentieri, the singer and guitarist for Don Antonio, already had a deep admiration for Escovedo, who’s 20 years his senior. For my upbringing, people like Los Lobos, which I got into a little before I got into Alejandro, were crucial.

Another terrific recent album also resulted from travel to Italy. Alejandro Escovedo’s The Crossing was not only recorded in Villafranca, Italy, with the Italian instrumental-rock band Don Antonio, but it was also co-written by Escovedo and Don Antonio’s Antonio Gramentieri. Italy, of course, is now caught in its own immigration crisis, and Escovedo, the son of illegal immigrants to America, was able to get a new perspective on these issues by viewing it through a European as well North American window ) It was one of the best albums of last autumn, and it couldn’t have h. .
