Founded by Nashville singer / songwriter Drew Holcomb, the Magnolia Record Club is a label that specializes in vinyl-only releases. With a motto that states “Curated by artists, not robots,” the label prides itself on the quality of their releases – from the music that flows between the grooves to the jackets and sleeves that embrace the vinyl itself. Drew Holcomb – who has been releasing a series of albums since 2005 – is best known for his work with his backing band The Neighbors and his work with his wife, Ellie. The seeds of the Magnolia Record Club were sewn when his wife bought him a record player as a wedding gift. After diving headfirst into purchasing vinyl and then having his own albums released on the format, he decided to start an artist-curated label, which became the Magnolia Record Club.
In the span of a couple of years, the label has released vinyl from artists such as The Lumineers, My Morning Jacket. Dolly Parton, Phoebe Bridgers, Brandi Carlile, Wilco, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, NEEDTOBREATHE, Lake Street Dive, Amos Lee, The Head and the Heart, The Lone Bellow, and many others. With rave reviews across the board, the label continued to move from strength to strength, issuing music they loved to an ever-growing audience of vinyl-loving music fans. From exclusive titles to colored variants, the Magnolia Record Club’s service allows subscribers to sign up for monthly titles personally hand-picked by curators such as Brandi Carlile, Josh Ritter, and more. In return, subscribers can visit many musical destinations within the notes that leap off of their turntables as they spin their Magnolia Record Club treasures.
