About Nathan

Welcome to Vinyl Records Rebirth!

My Story

Hello friend, my name is Nathan Gurley and I have been playing music for as long as I can remember. My father sang and played Bluegrass guitar and banjo and turned the family restaurant into a live music club.  My mother had a dancing school in Algiers (then Gretna, then Harvey), LA for 50 years. Music was everywhere on vintage vinyl records in my youth.  Now it’s time to participate in the bringing back of vinyl.


As we get older and life throws us curve balls, we need to find things that bring us joy, relaxation, entertainment, etc. The Good Lord knows when I watch too much news on the television or Internet, my pressure goes up and it affects my disposition.

I suspect there are others out there like me?  Are you?  If so. please comment below.

Last night, my drummer friend, Floyd Durand, and I were heading home from a church rehearsal at Grace Lutheran in the Lakeview area of New Orleans (that didn’t happen – different story) when I told him I was interested in creating niche sites and wanted to focus on music, which is what we do anyway.

I told him I had just purchased the domain name because I thought it would be a cool topic to talk about. Somewhere in the conversation, he told me he had just purchased a vinyl record set from Amazon and it hit me like a ton of bricks!

“Thank you, Floyd!” I exclaimed, “I will start with that niche”, and was born on 1/2/19.

Do you have a passion you would like to blog about or share with others?

Do you have any questions for me about this site or one you may be condsidering doing yourself?

If so, please comment below  and I will be more than happy to help.

All the best,

Nathan Gurley

  1. I love this site! I still have all my vinyl – albums and 45’s! My grandmother at one time even had some 78’s, Unfortunately, they were misplaced and never recovered again 🙁

    My love for music started when I was really young – about five years old. I even had vinyl back then!

    I had a little record player that I received when I was about six years old. I still have it to this day! I tried to play a record on it for my daughter last year, but it took its last breath and died on me. Uggh! The record player wasn’t a “close and play”, but it was close. I remember having to tape a nickel to the arm of it so the record wouldn’t skip.

    When I got older, I received a better, more durable record player as a gift one Christmas. It was a lot bigger than my first record player and had speakers. Back then, I called it a “stereo” and I absolutely adored it! After that, I just kept building my vinyl collection. I went through a real music phase when I was a teenager. I would go to the record store and buy a 45 every week. What a great memory for me.

    Thank you for taking me back down memory lane. After coming here to visit your site, I think I know what I’m going to put on my Christmas list this year – a record player! Why not, right? I still have my vinyl and I can then REALLY travel back in time.

    Thank you for this site and all the information you have shared here. Keep up the great work.

    Kind regards,

    1. Well Yvette, now you are bringing me and probably many others back down memory lane with your “nickel trick” 🙂

      As soon as you get that new and improved turntable, please report back with your experience.

      I appreciate you and all you have done to help our cause!

      Nate 🙂
