Mission Statement

Grapefruit Record Club is a record label founded by Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg in 2011 to release exclusive, limited, vinyl-only LPs by artists, both known and yet-to-be-known.  Originally created as a subscription-only "vinyl club", we sold subscriptions which included four albums by different artists released quarterly throughout the year. It was entirely mail-order only. After four years, we dropped the subscription model and began releasing our records individually and distributing through normal channels. In 2015, Grapefruit began carrying distributed titles and now offers a curated selection from other kindred independent labels in addition to records on Grapefruit and sister label, Ba Da Bing Records.
