Hello friends, colleagues, Vinyl Warholians, allow me to welcome you to The Vinyl Warhol. First, let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Matthew Weller, and I am a third year Junior at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Adverting and Public Relations. Once I graduate, I’m hoping to get a job doing publicity or promotion for a independent rock record label or for a company that I’m passionate about.
Now on to the important stuff, The Vinyl Warhol. I’m starting this blog because music is what means the most to me. This blog is going to contain music news, music reviews, along with something special. A segment that I’m going to start is going to be directed at anyone who wants to get into a band, but isn’t quite sure where to start. Just sit back, Matt’s going to do all the work for you. I’m not going to give too much of it away, just check back soon to find out.
So if you’re into garage rock, pop, indie, folk, hip hop, R&B, rock&roll, surf rock, top 40, or all of those things, please check back for when the action really starts.
But I wouldn’t leave you with nothing, here is some music news to get you pumped:
