Scott Register head of A&R at ThinkIndie talks about independent record shops, distribution and his life in broadcasting. LP catches up with an old friend and talks about music in a post-COVID world.


Scott Register is head of A&R at ThinkIndie, a distribution company that was founded by the Coalition of Independent Music Stores in 1999. They are also a proud partner of Record Store Day (and have been from the very beginning). Their mission is the same one today as it was the day they started the company: to bring great special releases to independent music stores all over. They are working all day, every day to do our part to accomplish this mission as well as continue to connect great artists and great record shops with great releases. Their end goal is to keep bringing true music lovers to the stores that truly make a difference.

Besides sharing the avid fan’s passion and enthusiasm for music, Think Indie stores are equipped with a unique catalogue of exclusive releases, live shows and limited-edition goodies from a variety of well-known artists – the kind of stuff that makes cool record stores even cooler.

So, find an independent record store near you, and remember what it’s like to shop in a store where the only appliances are in the break room.
