Founded in 1990 by mandolinist, composer, bandleader and producer extraordinaire David Grisman, Acoustic Disc is an independent record label dedicated to the preservation and integrity of acoustic music, musicians and instruments. Varied releases cover acoustic music of all genres — be it David's own award-winning dawg music, bluegrass, classical, latin, jazz or folk.
Some of today's premier acoustic musicians have recorded for Acoustic Disc: Tony Rice ("Tone Poems"), Martin Taylor ("I'm Beginning To See The Light," "Tone Poems II"), Doc Watson ("Doc & Dawg"), Andy Statman ("Songs of Our Fathers"), Enrique Coria ("Solos From South America," "Latin Touch"), John Hartford ("Retrograss"), Ricky Skaggs ("Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza"), Bob Brozman ("Tone Poems III") and Denny Zeitlin ("New River").
The late Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead (who gave David the nickname Dawg) often recorded at Dawg Studios and chose Acoustic Disc as the outlet for his acoustic side, resulting in the acclaimed "Garcia/Grisman," "Not For Kids Only," "Shady Grove," "So What," "Old & In the Way," "That High Lonesome Sound" and "The Pizza Tapes" — with more yet to come.
To date, David has put his creative touch on over 60 remarkable and different productions for his thriving little label — five of which have been nominated for Grammys. Acoustic Disc releases have received critical acclaim from "Stereophile," "The Wall Street Journal," "People" magazine, "Rolling Stone," "Mojo" and many others.
"When people ask me what type of music we put out at Acoustic Disc," said top dawg David Grisman, "I tell them that in my humble opinion, we put out the very best acoustic music there is."
