Phantom of the Opera

This Song: Shakey Graves

For an artist who got his start as a one-man band, it may come as a surprise that one of Shakey Graves favorite pieces of music comes from one of the most famous musicals of all time. On this episode, Austin’s Shakey Graves talks about his childhood love of the “Overture” from Phantom of the Opera and how it helped him explore his own theatricality on his latest album, Can’t Wake Up.
