Alejandro began his career performing in the punk rock band “The Nuns” alongside Jeff Olener and Jennifer Miro, in San Francisco. He soon left the band, following which The Nuns recorded a new album without much commercial success. In the 80s, Alejandro, who was initially based in San Antonio, relocated to Texas, where the alternative country/roots rock trends impacted his music. The singer soon joined post-punk roots rock band “Rank and File”, consisting of Tony and Chip Kinman, and the “True Believers”' John Dee Graham, Denny DeGorio and brother Javier. Alejandro rocketed to much success with his 90s' solo studio offerings, Gravity and Thirteen Years, which brought out his 'true voice'. Though the artist had yet to enter mainstream, he had already developed a large underground fan base. This underground following is more than thrilled about the upcoming Alejandro Escovedo Sensitive Boys performances.
In the late 90s, Alejandro collaborated with Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown in recording sessions of the album, Strangers Almanac. He performed on several songs, including Excuse Me as I Break My Heart Tonight, Not Home Anymore and Dancing with Women at the Bar. As a nod to Alejandro, a True Believers cover song, which was written by the singer himself was recorded by Whiskeytown and re-released on Strangers Almanac, Deluxe Edition. In 1998, the Mexican performer was named “Artist of the Decade” by No Depression magazine. During this time, Alejandro was also partaking in a side project, which reflected hard rock taste. In 1999, he recorded a tribute album for Skip Spence, founder of Moby Grape, who was ill with cancer. The offering, titled More Oar: Tribute to Skip Spence Album was intended to raise fund for Spence's medical bills.
To date, Alejandro has released fourteen solo albums, including hits Bourbonitis Blues (1999), By Hand of Father (2002), The Boxing Mirror (2006), and Real Animal (2008). He has received several accolades over the years, including an Austin Music Award (1993) in the category of “Musician of the Year”, and a “Lifetime Achievement Award” by Americana Music Associations (2006). In 2010, the artist issued Streets of Love, featuring tunes that he originally performed at Austin's Continental Club during “South Congress Sessions”. The album turned out to have “radio-ready love songs”, as quoted by the New York Times. Moreover, nationally syndicated radio programs like Underground Garage by Little Steven Van Zandt continuously played his song Silver Cloud for several months.
