ABOUT

Tucson-based acoustic duo, RISO, is a rich coalescence of creative matter. The last decade has seen members Matt and Rebekah Rolland on the road with nationally-acclaimed Americana band, Run Boy Run, participating as artists-in-residence for the National Parks Centennial, and collaborating on six studio albums. Their latest release, co-produced by the two for Rebekah’s National Parks project, Seed & Silo, was dubbed “a slice of folk perfection” by Americana UK and placed in the top three of Pop Matters’ Best Folk Albums of the Year.

 

Rooted in the acoustic soundscapes of their childhoods, and elevated by sharp and complementary musical instincts, the duo has established itself as a distinctive presence in Southern Arizona's lush arts scene.
