Music Marketing Services

Dropout Media is a full service management and label services company run by music and brand consultant Matt Bacon. We provide music marketing services and organize social media, tours, album releases, merchandise deals, and just about anything else. With years of experience and a top flight, internationally based team, Dropout Media is providing solutions for bands across the globe. Some notable claims to fame include working with Phil Collen of Def Leppard on a promo campaign as a teenager,  being a crucial part of the Exhorder reunion in 2017, working with Prophecy Productions to sign Coven and Novembers Doom and even hosting his own radio show on Gimme Radio alongside DJ’s like Dave Mustaine and Randy Blythe.

Dropout Media is built around three key tenets that serve to differentiate us from the pack:

  • We use the very same marketing and management tactics with our smallest clients that we've learned through working with top-tier bands and labels.
  • Dropout Media was built on DIY ethics. Our hard work and commitment to doing-it-ourselves provide a cost-effective and image-friendly service.
  • Our highly-graduated and piecemeal service offerings afford our clients sensible options for any need and any budget.

Matt has so much knowledge about the ins and outs of the underground music scene and beyond and his willingness to share the wealth is fantastic. Have done two challenges with Dropout Media and Dewar Pr to date and plan on continuing. even if you’re a musician who “knows” it all already. They’re are many fantastic tips from genuine people that might seriously give what “you know” a run for its money! Highly recommended!
