DIRECT-TO-VINYL SHUT-IN SESSIONS
A response to the devastating effect Covid-19 has had on the sustainability of independent artists worldwide.
Direct-To-Vinyl Shut-In Sessions is a very new and relevant project developed on the heels of the Covid-19 Pandemic. With live shows and touring absolutely devastated, now more than ever, artists need sustainable ways to connect with their audience and create art. Shut-In Sessions creates a revenue stream that allows artists to safely create an exceedingly unique product, a one-of-a-kind vinyl record, for their fans from the safety of their homes. Now more than ever, you need the support of your fans.

A preorder campaign page will be created and artists will promote using website, email lists, socials, texting, etc for a period of ONE WEEK, at which time the preorder campaign will close.
Upon conclusion of the preorder campaign, Artists will record individual performances for each preorder using recording equipment they have in their home. Simple/crude recording setups are just fine! These recordings do not need to be master quality, but should each be individual and specific for each person who places a preorder.
3. CUTTING RECORDS & SHIPPING
Artists will send their recordings to us, and upon delivery, each will be cut to it's own individual lathe cut vinyl record, making it a truly one-of-kind musical artifact.
And finally, the records are shipped to their customers.
4. THE MONEY
Each record sells for $25 (+ shipping). They cost $5 in supplies, leaving a profit margin of $20 which is split 50/50 ($10/$10) with the artist. Artists are paid as soon as recordings have been delivered.
