Frequently Asked Questions

What's with that name?

The original idea was a TV show called Room 19, where strange music would happen. Ink 19 was originally conceived as a program guide. While the TV show never came about, Ink 19 blossomed into a life of its own. (See History)

What is your purpose in life?

Ink 19 exists to promote awareness of the best new music, media and thought available today.
