New Face of Vinyl: Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland


The New Face of Vinyl is off to a fantastic start. Although we are only 53% funded, Owen and I decided to get things rolling and headed down to Gotta Groove Records right outside of Downtown Cleveland. We are lucky to call Cleveland our hometown, allowing us to get a head start on the book.



Gotta Groove Records is one of only a small amount of record pressing plants left in the United States. It opened back in 2009 and Vince, the owner, gave us an eye-opening interview of the wonderful facilities. It's fitting that we started this project at a pressing plant; like a record, it all begins here.



Help us document and share this interesting cultural shift in the way young people listen to music. Please visit the project site at to donate.
