In Conversation With...Jason Flom: A Lifetime in Music and Justice

New Yorker magazine called Lava Records’ Jason Flom “one of the most successful record men of the last 20 years.” But the descriptor doesn’t fully convey the many sites at which he’s struck gold. From his days under Ahmet Ertegun at Atlantic (where he signed Skid Row, Stone Temple Pilots and Tori Amos), to his creation of Lava (Matchbox 20, Kid Rock, Simple Plan), to the Capitol Music Group (Katy Perry, Thirty Seconds to Mars) to his reclamation of the Lava label in 2009 (Lorde, Jessie J, Greta Van Fleet), Flom’s record of monster signings is unparalleled. He’s also among the industry’s great philanthropists, as a founding board member of The Innocence Project and a member of numerous other charity boards. Mobile innovation & entertainment leader Ralph Simon conducts a provocative conversation with this superstar magnet & A&R visionary.
