A big year for Young Mister! Feb 09, 2017

Over the past week, Young Mister has stayed busy! The band spent time with producer Taylor Bray in Nashville to start work on their new album. Young Mister's debut album just cracked 1 million streams on Spotify, and we learned that 2 songs cracked Billboard charts last summer. American Airlines just added "Anybody Out There" to their February indie playlist, played on hundreds of flights every day. To top it all off, Young Mister will be heading out to Austin in a month to play an official showcase at SXSW.

A huge congratulations to Steven and the rest of the Young Mister crew for everything they've achieved over this past year! Keep an eye out for new tunes coming soon.

It's Test Press Week! Nov 28, 2016

After a year of putting out vinyl records for all you wonderful people, our test press storage box is finally full. We've hit a wall... Do we start a second box? Do we even have another box?! Does this new box get stacked on top of or below the current one? Too many questions.

We came to the only logical conclusion... We're going to stop hoarding test pressings and put them up for sale! Starting today, we'll be listing test pressings from our first 8 records throughout the week.

Monday, Nov. 28
