Music On Your Own Terms 089 - Matt Bacon - Bringing Home The Bacon!

Joining me on this episode is PR aficionado Matt Bacon from Dropout Media. Matt talks about his upbringing, his obsessive penchant for music culture and history, and how he launched his career working for bands and labels in the metal scene. He also takes us on a fascinating journey behind the scenes of label deals, working for large European festivals interviewing metal legends, and some tips for those who have aspirations to work in the music business. Matt also talks about his upcoming move to London (which at the time of release has already happened), his mental health, and he also shares an amazing list of books that contributed to his knowledge of marketing.
