Mr. Hilliard's just a pleb trying to make things right. Mr. Hilliard's love affair with limited edition vinyl & avant-garde fashion will be the death of him and his bank account.
On occasion, David can be seen crate-digging various Austin record stores in hopes of finding an original vinyl pressing of some obscure post-punk band. In 1986, David experienced his first heartbreak when the Houston Astros blew the National League Championship Series to the New York Mets. Austin has been his home since he was born, not because of his unwillingness to explore new terrain, but because it is the finest town a hopeless music lover and taco enthusiast could ever imagine.
I live in Denver, Colorado and am the lead Informant of SlyVinyl. I collect vinyl because I love giving back to the artists and getting a physical piece of music history in return is a beautiful bonus. I mainly listen to wax while relaxing after working a long day at Wick Creative, where I spend much time currently. As a side note, It should be known that I will never understand why someone would pre-order mp3s from iTunes... just sayin.
Eric hails from the blistering heat of the Sonoran desert. Out there in the southwest, they still find enough shade to boogie - It's not ALL sand and cacti!
Currently residing in Omaha, NE by way of CA, skateboarding is what really brought music into my life at an early age. Years later, it's the appreciation of how these art forms have independently and collectively impacted my life that really pushes me to support what's out there! From genre to genre one thing stays the same, that impact! Cheers!.. and long live the never-dead-format!!
Norwegian tune-traveller and vinyl enthusiast. Openminded to music, afraid to miss out on anything really good.. Genre is not important, content is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about music. I spend a lot of time listening to music. I go to shows in my sparse free time. I have booked shows, written reviews and I am currently a DJ Assistant at KEXP. Also, I am an all around music and vinyl nerd. My Discogs want list is quite lengthy: https://www.discogs.com/user/JHamilton
I like to get up in the morning, if there's still some fresh milk in the fridge, to bowl a nice big espresso. I'm very choosy and my favorite food is waffles. Time is running much to fast and I always have to hurry. I already have much too much records and still buy more, stupid fool I am. I love to watch the world to find the little things that makes life special. maybe this is one of the main reasons I became a film director.
A website designer/developer by day, you can find Aaron spending his nights putting on his new favorite vinyl, turning the volume all the way up, and getting his hands dirty with painting. He also has way too many hobbies, including anime, comics, video games, guitar, and vinyl figurines (to name a few).

Cincinnatian who loves discovering new music. My time comprises of three main things: vinyl, beer, and code. Everything else is just filler.
I hail from the "Oregon Bayou", south of Portland, as an isolated rare vinyl enthusiast scouting West Coast bands for insider information. My music preferences are genres that make me feel anything. Anything at all. I need to feel something... Genres that make me feel more than others tend to be Alternative Wonky, Space Folk, and Chamber Rap, but I'm not exclusive in the slightest.

Musician, sound engineer, mountain man. I love the outdoors but if you have to be inside you might as well be spinning records.
My record collection is probably smaller than yours....
Music has been my passion since I was a child, sitting in my Dad's truck listening to all the great classic rock songs that we all know and love. As I grew older I ventured into many different genres and was lucky enough to live in the Music Capitol of the world Seattle, Washington for a couple of years. My music expanded through going to local venues where I was usually was lucky enough to enjoy a beer or two with the musicians that would be there. I currently reside in the central valley of California, where I continue to live out my passion for Music and Vinyl. Enjoy the Ride my friends.
I live in Tulsa. I've got a wife. I've got a kid. I work. I listen to my meager record collection.

I'm Matthew Huff, a cinematographer and a avid vinyl collector. You'll find me around town listening to hardcore Synth-wave and being glued to my phone for the new releases that are coming out every single day. I'm a Junior in college, even know it has aged me to thirty five. I like to write screenplays and watch horror and dramas, but i don't work as a barista. I live in the small town of New Boston, Michigan, but hopefully my double major brings me elsewhere.
