About

Cigar chomping Matt Bacon is a consultant, A&R man, and journalist specializing in the world of heavy metal. Matt has worked with everyone from glam rock icon Phil Collen of Def Leppard to rock legends Coven by way of legendary thrashers Exhorder as well as labels including Prophecy Productions, Artoffact Records and Ripple Music. Far from simply trying to work with the biggest acts he can find, Matt has dedicated his life to helping young bands develop. Having started his own blog at the age of 14 he views his career in artist development as ‘a hobby that got out of hand.’ In 2015 he formed Dropout Media in order to better support the artists he loves. In the last year he has used his daily Instagram video series ‘Bacons Bits,’ and his podcast ‘Dumb & Dumbest,’ to give bands advice in an easily digestible way. With countless tours booked, records released, and deals signed, he loves every minute of it.
