Corner of Stone and Main: Horizon Records. Go ahead, flip through the album covers. Those vinyl-packed bins smell like memory and nostalgia. Even the new, shrink-wrapped LP’s suggest a time-gone-by begging to be written about. Tiny price tags on the used records say Pre-Loved. (Could be the title of your new novel) Blocked on a story? Go to Horizon, buy an $8 album. Slide it on your turntable. Embrace the scratches. Get magically unblocked. Best people watching in Greenville, there among the vinyl. Hungry? Walk (literally) through the wall to The Bohemian Café. Grab a seat at the bar. Best Cuban sandwich in Greenville. Damn thing is inspired.
– SCOTT GOULD, author, “Strangers To Temptation”, speaking about how to cure writer’s block in the Official Visitor’s Guide of Greenville, SC.
Today is Record Store Day, it’s a big day! Mike brought us all some incredibly nice gifts, trying to contribute to the local economy, and we’re going home with some really nice vinyl from Horizon Records. You’re lucky because not all cities have record stores. You’re very lucky and we’re very happy to get this opportunity to give a shout-out to Horizon Records and Gene Berger.

“ I miss horizon more than my mom. unless you are my mom reading this, in that case i miss you more. if it weren’t for Horizon, I’d be listening to Creed. where else can you get Eric Dolphy, El-p, Hindemith, Smog, and Doc Watson in the same place? One of Greenville’s treasures!

“So we’re at FujiRock finishing up soundcheck for our first show a couple nights ago, when I have a nice gentleman come up to me. He had his phone out and in broken English tells me he heard we were from Greenville and he had been there. He had Horizon Records pulled up on his maps app and asked me if I’d ever heard of your store. Always knew you guys were worldwide!”
– Matthew Jennings, keyboardist, The Marcus King Band
