Kelly Simmons Talks to Vinyl District About Album Cover Art

Kelly discusses his love of album cover art and livingroom campouts when the lights go out in this feature for Vinyl District.

In some ways I feel like vinyl albums are the book version of the video age. Sitting in front of a set of speakers with the album in your hands looking at artwork, reading lyrics, seeing who played on the albums, sometimes the instruments used. It sets the imagination on fire to the big picture of the band and the record. Imagine the inspiration that can do to an 8-year-old kid holding his mother’s Queen album in his hands.”

This is why the cover of our debut album, The Complete Recordings, was so important to nail. And we have our good friend Patrick Craig at Turn Agency to thank for that!
