Vic Horvath - Vinyl Record Pressing
Born in Calgary, AB and based in Victoria, BC; community was a source of constant inspiration for Canadian musician Vic Horvath and they strived to play everything from community music festivals, local record shops, and pop-ups as often as traditional spaces like bars and cafes.
~ ~ In September 2017, Vic Horvath released their acclaimed debut album 'West Coast Reign' (on CD and Casette) [SOLD OUT]. This unique album (described by many listeners as ethereal, warm, magical and honest) is the culmination of a very intentional process for Horvath (every step of the way). The album subsequently charted across Canada's university radio stations and Vic toured across Canada performing these songs wholeheartedly for their fans.
To honor the memory of Vic Horvath, we aim to raise enough funds to press West Coast Reign on 180g high-quality vinyl including two bonus tracks ('Tell All Your Friends' and a previously unreleased track recorded in collaboration with Rae Spoon). We will also be setting up online distribution for the record as well / local distribution through vinyl shops in Victoria, BC
With your collective support, we as a community can fulfill this dream and share their music with the world in a physical form. Pressed onto the very same wax that, from the beginning of it all, inspired Vic Horvath totheir core.
This is for each and every person that knew Vic Horvath, that loved them and that was inspired by one of their songs or just simply a conversation. That is an exceptionally long list.
If you could contribute anything towards this cause it would mean to world to the local music community and especially to Vic Horvath.

Note: A close family friend of Vic's, Asta Mail and myself, Matthew Andrade, will be handling & collecting any additional donations to be put towards a Music Scholarship in Vic's name, as per their family's request. The album will be mastered for vinyl locally and will be released locally and online through Rae Spoon's record label, Coax Records (here in Victoria, BC)
All profits from the sales of the vinyl will be going to a trust to create a Music Scholarship in Vic Horvath's name.
We will be posting updates on the progress of the Vinyl pressing campaign here periodically! Thank you so much for your support and for helping collectively bring one of Vic's dreams into reality
Words cannot express how I feel right now
Astonished that we could raise this amount in such a short period of time
UPDATE: The album will be pressed and released through Coax Records and we will be including two bonus tracks. Below is the music video for one of those tracks!
Remember to 'Tell All Your Friends'
