MARSHALL AND RECORD STORE DAY PARTNER
TO BRING THE SOUNDS AND STORIES OF MUSIC TO LIFE
AT INDEPENDENT RECORD STORES ACROSS THE U.S.
Marshall Becomes the Official Headphone and Speaker Partner of Record Store Day
Jan. 17, 2023 (NEW YORK CITY): Marshall Headphones and Speakers and Record Store Day US today announced an exclusive partnership starting in 2023. Along with making Marshall the official headphones and speakers of Record Store Day the partnership will include listening experiences, activations, and a presence in participating U.S. record stores throughout the year.
“The spirit of independent record stores goes far beyond simply buying music. Record stores are safe spaces where sounds and stories are shared to inspire listeners and help shape the musical landscape,” said Peter Wijk, Global Brand Director for Marshall Headphones and Speakers. “Marshall is honored to be an official partner of Record Store Day as we bring these sounds and stories from record stores to life with experiences that give listeners an opportunity to explore music with all of their senses.”
Beginning in Spring 2023, Marshall and Record Store Day will host events at independent record stores across the United States that showcase multi-sensory aspects of the vinyl listening experience, from the art of the album to the nuances of sound. The partnership will also include programming that supports music education in conjunction with independent record stores.
“Marshall is an iconic brand that has influenced the sound and creativity of countless musicians, whose music is in the DNA of what a record store is, and much of which has been a part of Record Store Day itself since we threw our first party 16 years ago,” said Carrie Colliton, co-founder of Record Store Day. “As more people turn to their local record stores for a sense of community and a more meaningful connection with the artists and the music, Marshall is the perfect partner for us to bring listening experiences to life, both in the stores and, importantly, in the homes and spaces where people never stop listening.”

Record Store Day, the organization, is managed by the Department of Record Stores and is organized in partnership with the Alliance of Independent Media Stores (AIMS), the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) and promotes independent record stores year-round with events, special releases and other fun things.
Record Store Day, the global celebration of the culture of the record store and the largest single-day music event in the world, takes place annually. The sixteenth Record Store Day will be celebrated on April 22, 2023.
Marshall is a true rock legend. A distinct and expressive sound combined with an iconic stage presence that has inspired music fans around the world for over six decades. This unparalleled amount of wisdom has been distilled and fused into every part of Marshall headphones and speakers. Nothing has been compromised when expanding the Marshall heritage of big stage performance to the individual enjoyment of good music.
The legacy began in a small Hanwell drum shop in the 1960s, where Jim Marshall sought to give a bunch of then-local guitarists the sound they wanted – a sound that was harder, crunchier and more rich. The result was the JTM45, an amp that reverberated with a sound that was much heavier than anything ever heard before. In a twist of rock and roll fate – those guitarists, much like the Marshall name, would go on to revolutionize music forever.
