Born in San Antonio before his family transplanted to California, Escovedo got his musical start playing guitar for first-wave punk band the Nuns. Eventually, he relocated to Austin and explored roots rock, Americana and alt-country in bands like Rank and File and the True Believers.
Sixteen albums later, including The Crossing, Escovedo continues to make important contributions to Texas music and the unfolding story of rock ‘n’ roll.
