Kara Connolly,
The TVD First Date

“The first record I remember listening to on vinyl was Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. Stevie looked like such a magical gypsy on the cover and I have to admit I felt cool even touching it.”

“‘Dreams’ is a mystical masterpiece; timeless, textured, spooky, but soothing, and giving crystal visions life. I was in a play in college that used Rumours as much of its soundtrack and it instantly brought me back to that first time hearing the album in that record store years prior. The crazy thing is that I recently got the opportunity to meet and perform for Ken Caillat (co-producer of Rumours) at his studio and write and record with his artist development team. I’m grateful for all of their talents and kindness. It was definitely a pinch yourself moment for me.

There’s something about wandering around a record store, picking up whatever cover catches your eye and reading the liner notes, that is just irreplaceable in this day and age. In a record store, music discovery is tangible. That physical connection with both the music and also with strangers or employees who would take you around and show you what they were currently listening to, was something special.

As an artist, I still strive to consider the whole artistic package in a time when everyone advises that it’s a ‘single’s market.’ Before shooting my single and album covers I wandered around Amoeba Records in Hollywood, looking at vinyl covers for inspiration. I decided to record a full-length album as my very first project despite that not being the standard these days because I love a comprehensive, nuanced storyline told through music and I also hope to incorporate liner notes in some way, somehow when the whole thing drops.

Music is magic and vinyl allows you to touch and feel that magic in your bones, at your very core.”
