Rosa’s Cantina

Rosa’s Cantina is an Americana band hailing from San Diego, California. They draw their inspiration from roots music such as bluegrass, blues, classic country and gypsy swing. The band started in 2015 when songwriters Carissa Schroeder (vocals) and Josh Renner (vocals/guitar) paired up for a co-write, after being introduced by a mutual friend. In late 2016, they brought in Nick Shores (upright bass), shortly followed by Adam Ainsworth (violin).  The four continued to flesh out the group’s sound, occasionally adding banjo, pedal steel, and washboard, and thus carving themselves a niche in the indie country landscape.
