Record Store Day, that crazy annual celebration of all things cool about brick-and-mortar record stores (which takes place on the 3rd Saturday in April), has announced that CD Baby’s sister company Disc Makers will be the official vinyl pressing sponsor for the event.
Makes sense. Disc Makers got back into the vinyl game a few month ago, even using the same vintage Hamilton presses that helped the company grow from a local vinyl pressing plant (way back in the 40’s), into the leading manufacturer of vinyl, CDs, and DVDs for independent artists.
“This partnership is a natural fit,” says Disc Makers CEO Tony van Veen. “We’ve always supported independent music, and Record Store Day is a proud supporter of independent record stores, which are the lifeblood of our industry. After all, most of our customers didn’t fall in love with music by shopping in a big box store. They fell in love at their local record store, staffed by diehard music fans.”
