Were excited that your interested in contributing to SlyVinyl. Before we ask you a few questions, we thought you should know a bit more about us.
WHAT IS SLYVINYL?
SlyVinyl is more than just a website that connects visitors to limited edition records. It’s a community of readers and contributors from around the world who come together to share their love of music.
WHY DOES SLYVINYL EXIST?
SlyVinyl exists as a resource for vinyl collectors to learn about limited edition releases from any genre or label and direct them to labels, stores, or websites where they can purchase them. Our team of contributors from all around the world scour the internet for interesting limited vinyl releases so our visitors don’t have to. In addition to being the foremost source for limited record info we also provide concert photography, show previews/reviews, and artist interviews in order to provide more in-depth coverage for our readers. Lastly, we also operate a small record label, putting out a few records a year, focusing on high quality, limited-edition vinyl.
WHO RUNS SLYVINYL?
SlyVinyl is run by passionate music fans and record collectors. We have no corporate partners or owners, we charge our users nothing, we discourage record flipping, and encourage supporting artists. Our leadership includes Scott Wickberg (Founder/Owner), Eric Hughes (Director of A&R and Production), David Hampton (Director of Enlightenment), and Brian Bruemmer (Editorial Director). None of our leadership collects a paycheck, we do this because we love music and collecting records.
WHAT IS SLYVINYL LOOKING FOR?
We’re looking for passionate music fans who are interested in contributing written content, such as:
- concert and music festival previews/reviews
- Interviews with artists
- Album release news
- Tour announcements
- Vinyl news
- Album reviews
IS THIS A PAYING GIG?
Unfortunately, no. SlyVinyl is a small organization, kept afloat by the hard work of passionate music fans who volunteer their time and talents as writers, photographers and more. We’re not raking in money and keeping it from you. In fact, last year is the first year ever that we broke even. This is a labor of love for all of us. Hopefully it is for you too.
