You Pick,
We Press!

Hurd members get to decide which band we press to vinyl each month. This month we’ve got five awesome artists for you to choose from. Scroll down, take a listen, and place your vote by close of play on 15th April. The winner is getting pressed for June’s edition of the record club.

First time here? Here’s what it’s all about. Every month we run a public vote across one week where we have ten incredible emerging artists up for nomination. Anyone and everyone gets to vote for their favourite. The top five then go to the member only vote. That’s where we’re at now. The five acts below all came out on top of the recent public voting round. Now, it’s up to just our record club members to decide who we press for Hurd record club next.

The Finalists!

Girl In Red

Girl In Red is the front of 19 year old Marie from Norway. Beautiful relaxed summer vibes contradict the sorrowful lyrics of her real life experiences. This girl is something special. Listen to the two tracks we’ll be pressing if Girl In Red wins the final vote below.

Lewis Shepperd

Lewis Shepperd is a talented solo artist from the Isle Of White. Think Jack Johnson come the old Ed Sheeran… a little like Lewis Bootle (who we pressed to wax last year!) The two tracks we’ll be pressing should Lewis get the vote are below.

What is the Hurd record club?

We run a monthly subscription based record club.  Every month, we press an exciting emerging artist to limited edition colour 7” vinyl, and post it to our members. With it, they also receive our A3 pull-out The Fold full of new music musings and a full length interview with the artist, and a one-off art print and lyric sheet. The club costs £9.99 a month, and members can cancel anytime. You can join here

We’ll send all members an email after the 15th April when the vote has closed. You’ll also be able to keep up to date with all announcements by following our Facebook page.
