California Roots Vol. 2 Vinyl Is Here

The 9th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival will take place at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center from May 25-27, 2018. To celebrate, California Roots is bringing back a second volume of their popular vinyl release series begun in 2017. The limited edition vinyl album has a unique splatter design, mixing four colors and housed in a gatefold jacket spread. The album features songs from artists on this year’s line-up, including an exclusive unreleased song from Slightly Stoopid.


The release, aptly titled California Roots Vol. 2, is available for pre-order at Attendees will be available to purchase the vinyl at the festival, but pre-orders are strongly recommended due to the very limited pressing run. Fans who pre-order can choose to have the record shipped to their house before the festival, or pick it up at the merch booth on site. The album was produced by festival co-producer Dan Sheehan alongside Eric Smith and Lem Oppenheimer of the indie tastemaker label Easy Star Records.


Cali Roots has a firm commitment giving back to non-profits in creative ways, choosing organizations who align with their brand and passions, pairing them with one of their profit-generating programs to raise funds for important causes. All profits from Volume 2 vinyl sales will be donated to the ‘Yes ICAN ( program. Their mission is “Working world-wide to break the silence and cycle of abuse.”


Dan Sheehan, festival Co-Producer, states, “When we launched the vinyl last year it was such an inspiring project that I was very proud of. Volume 2 keeps our high standard up with stunning unique artwork from Shaun Logan as well as a few exclusive tracks that can only be heard on this compilation.” He adds, “We are committed to releasing vinyl every year to showcase and capture our festival annually. Cali Roots is one of the only festivals with an annual vinyl compilation and we are very proud to keep the spirit of physical music alive and donate to such great organizations at the same time.”
