What is Groovalo?
Groovalo is a monthly vinyl subscription service that goes above and beyond to financially support artists. Each issue includes the featured LP from your selected genre, chosen by previously featured artists, as well as our line notes (our mini-magazine), and some other goodies along the way.
How much does Groovalo cost?
It’s £22 per month plus shipping. You can get discounts by paying for 3, 6, or 12 months in advance. Lots of subscription services aim to provide you with content valued at more than your monthly cost. We don’t believe that’s right for music. We charge a price that enables the artist and all those involved in each release to be paid fairly, and then some.
Do you only work with jazz, punk and soul?
For now, yes. But we’ll be adding other genres as we go.
What do I get? I mean, stuff.
Each month, you’ll receive a featured full-length 12” LP from your selected genre, and our liner notes (our mini-magazine).
When will my first record ship?
We’ll post to you at the start of each month.
Where do you ship?
We ship almost everywhere! Live somewhere extremely remote? Get in touch and we’ll see what we can do!
Can I buy a subscription for my friend?
Of course, who wouldn’t want music as a gift! Just select "prepay" then "gift" when choosing a subscription.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all standard credit and debit cards.
How do I cancel?
You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time by following the links in your Groovalo customer account page, or by using the "manage my subscription" link in your order emails.
You say musicians get a profit share. But don’t they get paid for selling their albums?
Yes they do, but we want independent artists and music ecosystems to thrive and continue to create, perform, record, and release the music we love. That's why we want them to share in any successes we have!
Is your logo a buffalo or a bison?
Neither, it’s a groovalo!
