In Your Ear Records returns to Rhode Island
Four years after closing its historic Thayer Street location, In Your Ear! returns to the Rhode Island music scene at its new location at 462 Main Street in Warren, RI. After 19 years on Thayer Street in Providence, the storied music store shut its doors in 2004, the victim of spiraling rents and taxes, and the rush to legal – and illegal – music downloading. In the meantime, Chris Zingg, part-owner of In Your Ear, opened a separate store, Zingg Music, in the East Bay in 2001. Recently, Zingg entered into discussions with his partners about combining forces and retooling his store as In Your Ear. A deal was struck in early 2008 and the former Zingg Music is now In Your Ear.
As part of IYE's return to the Rhode Island market, the store will be revamped and restocked with an emphasis on new and used vinyl; the store in Warren will carry newly-issued titles as well as hard-to-find collectibles from the past. The store will also stock turntables, phonograph cartridges and record supplies as well as musical instruments and instrument supplies. In Your Ear will also continue to offer music lessons for guitar, bass and drums in its 5 studios.
While most large music retailers are only carrying top hit recordings, the store in Warren will continue its commitment to customer service through its in-depth selection and special-order service for new and out-of-print CDs and LPs. “If you can't find a recording, try us,” says owner Zingg, “We are proud to be part of the Warren revitalization. Come visit us and experience the last of the great record stores!” Established in 1982, In Your Ear has 2 other retail locations in Boston and Cambridge, MA.
