#JEALOUS: This 17 Year Old Owns His Own Vinyl Record Label
17 year old high school junior Jarrett Koral founded Jett Plastic Recordings as a vinyl only label. This year for Record Store Day, he released a seven-inch by actor Macaulay Culkin’s Velvet Underground cover band.
Macaulay Culin was not Jett Plastic's first release since launching in 2012 and the very indie label will add 6 more to its dozen deep catalog by the end of the year. The label's name was inspired by the Paul McCartney Wings' hit "Jet".
"I still have school, but I pretty much devote all my time to the label,” Koral told the Guardian. “Shipping orders, packing orders, doing promotions online, contacting news outlets – even just talking to the musicians takes a lot of time."
“I know it sounds corny, but the label is mainly me trying to put out what I like and want to get other people to listen to. What I was trying to do is let them have an outlet for their music. I was just trying to help out.”
Here's an earlier interview with Koral.
