Tower Groove Records is an eclectic collective of St Louis-based artists and musicians dedicated to supporting each others’ endeavors. Through this common vehicle, they promote projects and shows with a goal of encouraging St Louis culture.
Following the smashing success of the Tower Groove Records Carnival last fall and the subsequent release of the TGR double LP compilation, Tower Groove Records is proud to announce our next project: a 7” record singles club.
The Tower Groove Record singles club aims to bring audiences fresh tracks from both their most cherished St. Louis acts and from future favorites. Established Tower Groove Records bands are paired up with the newest members of our Tower Groove Records family in once-monthly releases.

The management of these record stores have extended an extra bonus to members of the Tower Groove Records Singles Club: subscribers will also enjoy a 10% discount at their chosen record store on the day that they pick up their Tower Groove Records single.
Regional and international orders will be shipped, with information available at TowerGrooveRecords.com.
To celebrate the debut of the Singles Club, TGR has done what it does best: organized a series of kick-off parties.
