Around here we’re fortunate enough to call Alejandro Escovedo a friend. If you know Al, or his story, you know he’s had a rough patch — if you can call nearly dying a “rough patch.”
Recently Al performed his new song from his upcoming album with Bruce Springstein live in Houston. Yeah, it’s really cool to see Al playing with the Boss and Steven Vansandt. But what’s really stunning is seeing my friend having such a great time. Listening to the unmastered mixes of his upcoming album one thing is clear; that sense of enjoying music again is alive in Al’s music as much as Al is.

Every once in a while, honey let your love go
Nobody gets hurt”
