Vinyl Writer Music is a collective group of freelance journalists and passionate music fans who all believe in the power of one important thing: community.

We believe in promoting positive relationships across all of the facets of the Music and Vinyl Communities, including the YouTube channels, organizations, online communities, radio shows, podcasts, pressing plants, music labels, subscription services, record shops, filmmakers, and journalists/blogs who deliver invaluable and quality product, content and information to keep us, the passionate music consumers, entertained, educated and happy. We want to bring attention to these leaders by showcasing and celebrating their efforts to promote positivity and togetherness.

This Vinyl Writer Music Community page is dedicated to our Vinyl and Music Community Leaders who are going above and beyond to promote positivity and connectedness not only among their following, but across all of our collective communities. Each of these leaders stands upon a platform of strong and commendable core values which never waver. Many of these leaders are raising the bar and contributing to enhanced community and industry standards which benefit us all.

Thank you to each and every one of these leaders for sharing their knowledge, advice and time with all of us! The Vinyl and Music Communities exist because of these leaders, and these communities continue to grow on the backs of all they have enlightened us with. We look forward to seeing what we can all accomplish together!
