A couple budding local entrepreneurs — Spencer Morgan and Eric Gussler — have big ideas for their nascent record label, which helps explain, in part, why they’ve dubbed the new business Superdreamer Records.
The pair hopes to launch the independent label in 2014, and will host a fundraising kick-off party at 400 West Rich on Thursday, Oct. 17, with a goal of raising $13,000 over the next month to help fund the venture.
Plans are to begin releasing full-length albums from select Columbus acts beginning early next year on vinyl (records will be pressed in batches of 500), CD and via digital download. In a press release, the pair noted they have plans to work with “some of the best up-and-coming bands in town,” but they won't be releasing any band names until initial fundraising has been completed and deals are in place with prospective artists.
The launch party/fundraising event runs from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. at 400 West Rich (located at 400 W. Rich St. in Franklinton), and features a performance by local rockers Comrade Question. Admission is free.
In addition, the pair also created a page on the crowd-funding website fundable.com, which you can visit by clicking here, and are offering pledgees everything from digital downloads and Superdreamer T-shirts ($10 and $30 donations respectively) to a package including every release the label puts out ($300+).
