Subscribers and friends of Grapefruit. We are saddened to report that we must take a hiatus from future releases for the time being due to financial concerns. We will be refunding everyone's payments while we approach like-minded labels to see if we can get the funding to complete series four. We are still operating and taking orders for any of the existing twelve albums in our back catalog but we are not able to pursue this next new LP series as planned. If you run a label or are a wealthy benefactor interested in sinking money into wild, obscure, beautiful music, please contact us for information on how to become a partner or investor in the label! Otherwise, please accept our apologies for this bad news. Check here for updates and hopefully better news soon.

Grapefruit Records is a subscription based record club founded by Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg to release exclusive and limited, vinyl-only LPs by dedicated artists, both known and yet-to-be-known. The only qualification being that both Ben and Simon love the music. A Full-Subscription includes four quarterly released full-length LPs, all part of a series, sharing identical cover art but in different colors. Additionally, we offer the individual albums for sale but we encourage people to choose a full subscription because subscriptions spread the wealth and the fans between the better known and lesser known artists.
By selling subscriptions and individual albums directly to the public we avoid many of the expenses which make it difficult for traditional labels to make a profit. There are no promotional expenses, no distributor fees, and no returns. We only manufacture a single pressing of each release and base that pressing on the number of subscriptions we receive. We pay all the participating artists based on how many records are pressed so bands don't have to wait for their record to "break even" before they are compensated for their work. Additionally, the label's subscription-based distribution concept allows the established artists to share their audience with the lesser known artists featured on an annual roster. Grapefruit's mission is to expose fans to exclusive, challenging new music on vinyl while ensuring that the musicians actually get paid for creating their art.
