We love local artists. And for the first time, we’re releasing a compilation record that is purely Colorado. Teaming up with “the best damn record club out there,” Vinyl Me, Please, we’re putting together a 12-track album featuring strictly Colorado musicians.

The album will feature beloved Colorado artists like GRiZTrev Rich, Wildermiss, an exclusive track by Flobots and more — all only on vinyl. “I love that the Denver music scene is one where the artists strive to uplift their community,” expressed Denver DJ and producer GRiZ. “It says a lot that people are wanting and doing what’s best for their culture. I’m honored to be a part of it.”

In addition to showing local love by featuring Colorado musicians, we sought out the assistance of local artist John Vogl for the 303 Music Vol. 1 cover art. Vogl took his inspiration for the art from the colors of the Colorado flag and natural beauty of our state. He has spent years making concert posters for a variety of bands— St. Vincent, Shakey Graves and Sylvan Esso to name a few.

By partnering with Youth on Record 80 percent of all profits from the album will benefit the organization, creating a better tomorrow for them and in turn, the Colorado community as a whole.

“Youth on Record far exceeds anything that we possibly could imagine,” said local alternative band Flobots. “That’s because the city came together to make it happen, and we think that’s one of those things that makes Denver so special. That’s why we stay here because Denver is a special place.”
