About this event

RISO - Fri, NOV 18, 7pm, Elks Crystal Hall 3rd floor

Matt and Rebekah Rolland of the acclaimed Run Boy Run

"A rising star in the Americana and mountain music world." - Ear to the Ground

For the last decade, Matt and Rebekah Rolland, who form the core of the acoustic band RISO of Tucson, Arizona, have been on the road with their nationally-acclaimed Americana band, Run Boy Run, participated as artists-in-residence for the National Parks Centennial, appeared twice on American Public Media's "A Prairie Home Companion and collaborated on eight studio albums. RISO is rooted in the acoustic soundscapes of their respective childhoods and embraces an old-time aesthetic that seems to emanate from the very bones of the earth yet incorporates pop flourishes and sometimes complex arrangements. Their new album "New Eyes" is available July 15 on all digital platforms and CD. Their 2018 album, Seed & Silo, co-produced by the two for Rebekah's National Parks residency, 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.

From Tucson, Arizona, RISO's sweet vocals and dynamic instrumentals serve as a striking counterpart to gritty, beautifully honest, and captivating original songs.

For New Eyes, Arizona folk music powerhouses Matt Rolland and Rebekah Sandoval Rolland have come full circle. Their band, RISO, is the culmination of a musical lifetime spent together – and the album is a document of the ebb and flow of the last decade of their lives as students, musicians, and, more recently, parents.
