LA based Composer/Producer and Drummer Jon Mattox joins me today on the Spiritual Spiral Podcast. Jon may be best known in LA as a film composer writing and creating music for numerous TV shows, video games and commercials, but he is also an incredibly talented studio drummer. Jon shares stories about his upbringing, how music played such a vital role in his life and what drew him to become a drummer in the first place. He talks about transitioning from touring with The Young Dubliners to building a home studio, becoming a studio based drummer as well as a film composer. We also talk about the current state of the music industry and if the full length record may become a thing of the past. We discuss Cal Newport's book Digital Minimalism, the value of quiet time and Jon shares some of the struggles he faces when it comes to promoting his work on social media.
