I’m a regular guy who loves all things musical. By day, I work in IT and software. When I’m not working, I’m listening to music, reading about music, going to concerts, and being otherwise obsessed about music. My mission with this site is simply to share that love of music with others without some record label, promoter, or artist telling me what (or who) to write about.
To be clear, I’m NOT a recording artist or record company, nor do I work for or with any labels, promoters, artists, or anyone else in the music biz. (That’s the independent part.)
It’s just me, my love of music, and my ability and willingness to share. I hope you bring the same.
First, I like alliteration. :-) However, I cannot roll my R’s. :-(
Second, records (the word) has a couple different relevant definitions here:
[v. tr.] rɪˈkɔrdz – sets down in writing or the like, as for the purpose of preserving evidence. For example:
She records her thoughts, feelings, and dreams in her diary.
[n.] rek’erdz – somethings on which sound has been recorded for subsequent reproduction, as grooved disks that are played on a phonograph for recording sound. For example:
David Gray released two new records last year.
