The Tastemaker’s Ten: Catherine Vercolli of FiveThirteen Recording


Catherine Vercolli has been in the business of sound for more than a decade. In fact, and her studio – FiveThirteen Recording – is gearing up to celebrate its decennial. And, of course, Vercolli plans to mark the occasion in style with a blowout occasion at Valley Bar in Phoenix. We would expect nothing less from the woman whose studio consistently puts out unique and highly stylized releases year after year, drawing some of the state’s most exemplary talents to her Tempe headquarters.

And, she’s super cool. In honor of the upcoming 10-Year Celebration of FiveThirteen Recording we asked Catherine, a tastemaker if ever there was one, to pick out ten tracks that she thought every music aficionado should know. Check out her picks and, don’t forget, we expect to see you on Saturday, August 13th, at Valley Bar for the big celebration.
