Talker,
The TVD First Date

“My mom had a pretty sizable record collection growing up, and I always loved the look of them, and the stories she had for each record—how she found it, when she bought it, who gifted it to her, when she listened to it.”

“I think the special thing about vinyl records is that, while all music no matter the format will carry with it some sort of emotional association and connection, there’s nothing like thumbing through a box of used vinyl at a flea market—the sounds, the smells, the angle of the sun—you don’t get any of that digitally. It sounds super nostalgic and like I’m romanticizing the past, but those experiences really add a tangible extension of emotion.

Plus, as a teenager I became obsessed with putting the album covers on my wall. That’s the best part for me—vinyl records come with built-in visual art! You can’t put a Spotify playlist on your wall. In high school, I had a whole installation on my wall that included Who’s Next, Led Zeppelin II, The Doors, The Joshua Tree, and a bunch of others. I loved it. There’s just a heightened level of self-expression that vinyl gives you.

I think that’s mirrored on the side of the artist versus consumer as well. I’d love to create really incredible visual art that people can put on their walls and attach sentimental value to. Once I put out a full length record the main physical copies will be vinyl. Until then I just have to keep gathering ideas from my own collection!”
