# FAQ’s# Founding Story **Like most great ideas, Vinyl Me, Please was born out of a passion for music and a desire for something that didn’t exist.** Launched in 2013, VMP’s founding team -- consisting of Matt Fiedler, Tyler Barstow, and Cameron Schaefer -- saw an opportunity to create a new kind of music service. Streaming was on the rise and, as avid music fans, the three saw the benefits of the new format, but couldn’t help feeling like something was missing. Thinking back to the days of reading liner notes, looking through photos of the bands they admired, and endlessly studying lyrics of the songs they loved, they longed for a deeper, more rich music experience that digital formats simply couldn’t provide. Originally launched as a record of the month club, VMP was designed to give customers a tangible and focused music experience. The service offered one record per month and was shipped alongside custom art prints and cocktail pairing recipes to encourage a full-sensory experience. Since then, VMP has grown in popularity with 30k+ members, 3 different subscription tracks, an online magazine, and an evolving online store that features more than 300 additional exclusive offerings. VMP has quickly risen to become one of the largest vinyl retailers, thereby shifting the landscape of the modern music industry. Today the company is focused on continuing to expand its reach and improving its core offering, while creating new and unique opportunities for members of its community to experience music more deeply.# In the Press
