“I started collecting vinyl before I even had a record player.”

“My mother is an avid yard sale enthusiast and classic rock buff, so we used to get boxes of old classics—like Fleetwood Mac, the Doobie Brothers and Chicago—for quarters. At some point, I was finally gifted a record player, and then I was even more hooked.

I continued to collect vintage records, and can still remember where the scratches are in the music on some of my favorites. I remember when I went to listen to the Rags to Rufus album on Spotify for the first time, I was alarmed when my good old scratches and skips weren’t there! Those qualities give a real-life feel to the vinyl that digital audio can never truly duplicate.

That’s why I recently started buying some of my favorite contemporary albums on vinyl too. Every time I go to a show I head to the merch table to see if they artist is selling records, and it’s my favorite keepsake from a concert.

Unlike a stream, which is just playing the same audio file everyone else listens to, the vinyl I purchase is just for me. It feels so much more personal. That’s also why I love companies like Leesta Vall Sound Recordings in Brooklyn, which do one-of-a-kind, live, straight-to-vinyl recording sessions. I recorded songs off of my last EP at a Leesta Vall session, and each one is a little piece of my heart and soul.”
