Gold Rush Vinyl: Innovating the Record Industry in Austin, Texas | Caren Kelleher

Today on Small Business War Stories we are joined by Caren Kelleher, owner of Gold Rush Vinyl in Austin, Texas.

Caren began working in the technology side of music, starting at Songkick and moving to Google to help launch Google Music and Google Play. During this time she had a side gig as a band manager and noticed that young fans were wanting to buy vinyl. She found that vinyl took months to be created, and was inspired to find a better way. Gold Rush Vinyl was opened in early 2018 and focuses on high quality, fast-turn around record pressing.
