Phoenix (Sept. 6, 2022) – Vinylly, the dating app that matches users based entirely on music compatibility, announced today a new way to find love amidst an era of dating app fatigue. Now anyone who is a music fan looking to find their next plus-one to take to a concert, or their music partner for life, can do it through Vinylly’s new proprietary profile generator. Vinylly previously generated matches utilizing Spotify-streaming data, and while users can still sync to Spotify, the app now offers the additional capability to create a custom profile that is unrestrained by syncing with a music service provider.
“It doesn’t matter if you stream music across multiple platforms or just collect vinyl, finding a music match is just a few taps away on Vinylly and is currently free,” said Rachel Van Nortwick, Vinylly’s CEO and Founder. “We are the only music-based dating app that has this type of profile generator. We know that music fans have diverse ways they listen and curate music, so we decided instead of integrating additional providers, we would build a profile generator that works for everyone.”
And for the first time, Vinylly users have the ability to create and edit playlists infinitely to keep their profile in sync with their latest music vibe. Plus users can still search, suggest and buy tickets without leaving the chat, making a first date option as easy as possible.
Inspired by her love for music and its scientifically-proven ability to connect individuals on a deeper level, Van Nortwick founded Vinylly in 2019. The app has been reinventing dating for music lovers since, helping users to connect on a more personal level as opposed to relying on superficial profiles and swipes that often lead nowhere. Vinylly has also focused on working with music promoters and artist management to provide a referral funnel to encourage single concertgoers to buy tickets to shows and connect with other like-minded users.
“Vinyllly provides an avenue for users to start authentic and meaningful relationships in a way that many of the mainstream dating apps just can’t. The science behind how music defines our identity really sets the stage for using it to find compatibility with a potential mate,” said Van Nortwick.

At Vinylly, we believe (and science has proven) that the music we love and the way we listen to it is a powerful window into who we are – connecting us on a deeper level and providing us with a solid foundation to develop and maintain lasting relationships. Vinylly is a free inclusive dating app that matches users through a proprietary music profile generator or if a user chooses, an analysis of their streaming history. These combined with a few questions about the role music plays in their lives, enables Vinylly’s algorithm to provide “high volume” matches. Users have the ability to create and edit their playlists and to browse matches and press “play” when they want to connect, as well as chat and get concert tickets for first dates all without having to leave the app. Available on the U.S. and Canadian AppStores, Vinylly was recently recognized by Mashable as one of the “8 dating apps that are bucking against Tinder’s model.” To learn more, visit www.vinyllyapp.com.
