Tucson Trio Roll Acosta Learn From Recording Process

Band members say recording in San Fransisco changed their approach to music and friendship

LISTEN

One of the newer additions to Tucson's diverse music scene is the acoustic trio Roll Acosta, made up of by guitarist and singer Jacob Acosta, drummer Andre Gressieux, and violinist Kevin Frederick.

The band recorded their new full-length album This Dreamt Existence in San Fransisco, under the guidance of indie rock musician and producer John Vanderslice at his studio, Tiny Telephone.

The recording process turned out to be a learning experience for the band. Mark McLemore asked Jacob Acosta and Andre Gressieux to join him in the studio to talk about how it has influenced Roll Acosta's approach to their music.

We recorded a longer interview with Roll Acosta in June 2012. Hear that interview here:
