Record Store

Songbyrd carries major and indie label new releases, as well as a varied selection of hip-hop, R&B, indie-rock, pop, dance, Americana, soundtracks, jazz and classic rock vinyl (check out our inventory here). We also have a curated selection of used albums. (We even have a few local cassettes!)

Want to make sure you can score a copy of a new release? You may pre-order an upcoming LP by giving us your contact info - we'll let you know when it's in stock, and hold your copy for a week! (We might let you know about future events as well, but we promise not to fill up your inbox)

Have some clean used vinyl you'd like us to take off your hands? Do you run a local vinyl (or cassette!) label and want us to carry your stuff? Any other questions? Contact our vinyl manager at: jonathanvinyl@songbyrddc.com
