Local Label Spotlight: Funzalo Records

By Niki D’Andrea

Believe it or not, there are a handful of excellent indie record labels in the great state of Arizona, boasting rosters with some of our finest local artists and some hot underground national acts, as well. This week, we'd like to give a shout-out to Funzalo Records.

Funzalo Records (Tucson) Founded in 2006

Roster includes:

Mostly Bears (Tucson) The Mother Truckers (Austin) Tony Furtado (Portland, OR) Luca (Tucson) Green Pitch (La Jolla, CA) Mint (Belgium)

The Mother Truckers

Why they’re hot:

Tony Furtado’s albums have featured guest vocals from Allison Krauss and Jerry Douglas.

Mostly Bears and The Mother Truckers played multiple showcases at this year’s SxSW festival.

When visitors purchase anything from Funzalo’s online store, they’re entered in a monthly drawing for a free iPod.
