Crossing borders, jumping barriers, taking risks, betting it all: that’s the path Alejandro Escovedo has been taking in his lifelong search for the heart of rock and roll.
Aleandro’s new album, The Crossing is about that journey: searching, but not necessarily finding, eyes and ears open all the way. It is his first for Yep Roc records and his first ever recorded in Europe. “This says more about me than any of my records without it being a record about me,” Alejandro says.
The Crossing tells the tale of two boys, one from Mexico, one from Italy, who meet in Texas to chase their American rock and roll dreams. They discover a not-so-welcoming, very different place from the Promised Land they imagined, with cameos from the likes of Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Joe Ely and James Williamson of the Stooges to show the boys the way.
