The Introduction

Santa Rosa Records is an independent label, recording studio, and curator of underground roots music from around the globe and across all genres.

A long time ago, when my grandmother was just a little girl, she lived in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Here, she traded little funny books with a young Hank Snow. Nearly a century later, my first makeshift studio was nearly burned down to the ground by a candle with a “Santa Rosa” inscription pressed into its wax. The rest is history.
