      The Vinyl Project by Nick Tann

      UK based singer-songwriter Nick Tann really wants his music on vinyl. He's written 33 songs and is looking to arrange an album of 10 - 14 songs on a vinyl only release of 1000 records. The problem? It's pretty expensive to do.

      The answer? Ask the community for help.

      Nick went ahead and setup a blog to document his venture and has a donation function where you can pre-order his album for £10. Here's the plan:

      • Find 250 people to commit to pay £10.00 upfront for my VINYL album (the remainder will cost £15.00)
      • Find a studio that can record specifically for vinyl.
      • Record an album.
      • Master the tracks.
      • Press a minimum of one thousand records.
      • Distribute to the 250
      • Sell the rest

      It's an interesting story and we hope Nick can pull it off. Check out his blog to hear his music, keep up to date on how it's going, and to help fund his dream. Also, be sure to follow him on Twitter for the latest.

      Good luck Nick!
