About Us

Vinski International is an artist-focused group of music industry brands dedicated to helping solo musicians and bands start their journey.  We strive to prepare musicians for what lies ahead by providing a solid foundation on the business side so that they can remain focused on the their artistic side.

Formed in 2008, Vinski International has grown to include 6 brands that range from record label to band gear management.  President and CEO, Tony Vinski, has a long resume of experience in the industry starting in 1996 as a cashier at a record store and starting his own online e-commerce store, Indierex.com, a few years later.  That store lead to starting Swade Records and eventually the creation of Vinski International as a parent corporation for additional divisions like SWR Publishing, Backwater Productions, and Aspect Guitarworks.
