In the heart of the RiverBend area, there is a place where music, nostalgia, and a shared love for vinyl converge – RiverBend Records. This is no ordinary record store. It’s a love letter to vinyl, penned by its owner Billy Hurst, a passionate collector, music enthusiast, and professional photographer, whose romance with vinyl records has spanned over three decades.
Billy’s journey into the world of vinyl commenced in the comfort of his home, under the watchful eyes of his parents. He was taught how to handle records with the utmost care, from placing the album onto the record player properly to positioning the stylus without causing any harm to the record. He learned how to put records back into their covers, preserving them for future musical journeys. This early education kindled a love for vinyl that would accompany Billy throughout his life, in every note he played and every photograph he captured.
It was during his regular visits to record stores across the country that Billy saw an opportunity to contribute to the world he loved so much. He sought to learn what makes a record store special, what draws people in and keeps them coming back. With this knowledge and his undying passion for music, he envisioned creating a record store that would cater to music lovers and audiophiles just like him. His vision became a reality in the form of RiverBend Records.
