Kat Quinn, The TVD
First Date and Premiere, “Rust to Gold” EP

“Frank Sinatra spinning on vinyl, the rotary-dial phone ringing on the end table, family scattered across the floor in front of the fire. That’s what I think of when I think of the holidays. (In the late 1990s, to be clear).”

“I lived in an old colonial house in Massachusetts where quality always out-valued the latest fashions. My parents have a special appreciation for things that endure, and it’s that appreciation that brought me to vinyl. And in turn, brought me to music.

I could have veered away from the phonograph (and rotary-dial phone) because it was out-dated, but the truth is, I loved the way it took me out of modern reality for a moment and brought me to wherever I needed to be. Music does that. It fills you up right where you’re empty. And over the years, lying on the floor listening to records turned this music-lover into a music-maker.

When I went to college, I no longer had the record player. But I still had the records. So my roommate and I covered the walls of our apartment with them, and crooned along as best we could from memory. It was a space filled with as much love and music as the holidays at home, because no matter where you are or how you take it in, music endures.”
