I've always wondered how Shakey Graves could make the music he makes all by himself. Well this split screen session from The Sessions Factory provides a reasonable explanation: he's more than one person.
I mean, I've seen a different Shakey video where he had multiple limbs —which kind of helped explained how he could play, sing and stamp a beat so effortlessly— but I knew deep down inside that he didn't really have multiple limbs. But there being three of him? That seems more logical.
And sure, there are plenty of videos that exist that may prove that he is just a super talented one man band… but as someone who can barely strum a guitar and sing at the same time, I prefer to believe that this excellent ‘Tomorrow’ video is the real deal, and all those other “only one Shakey in view” videos are the ones that are using digital trickery.
