Episode 43 - Sara Pette and Alex Stillman, Outta Wax Pressing

Listen To This Episode - 45:29
On this episode are excited to have conversation with Sara Pette and Alex Stillman co-owners of https://www.outtawax.com/, a pressing plant and lathe cut studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founded in the spring of 2020 we discuss the ups, downs and reality of starting a record pressing plant. The Outta Wax team are simply put - record nerds - who came together to open a factory whose primary purpose is to uplift and celebrate local and independent artists who kept the record industry alive through the decades - especially within their community. We enjoyed discussing the other side of the coin with a newer plant’s journey after hearing about United’s long standing place in our industry last month. Huge thanks to Stefani Sikora, singer, songwriter and performer for the use of her song ‘Good Days Are Coming’ off her new record The Shine.
