Rob Mason (Old Flame Records)
Formed in late 2008, Old Flame Records is the brainchild of Rob Mason. Rob worked his way up the industry starting as a street teamer for Sub Pop and the Street Syndicate, followed by an internship at WOXY Radio, and a two-year stint at Razor and Tie doing radio promotions and marketing. Old Flame is distributed by Redeye Distribution.
Old Flame is focusing on digital releases with a limited physical component for you die-hards that still love physical tapes, CDs and vinyl.
For as long as he can remember, Rob Mason has enjoyed turning people on to new music. Growing up in suburban Ohio in a time before the Internet, he had to do a lot of digging if he wanted to find the good stuff. After years of doing various jobs in the music industry, from programming radio, marketing releases and radio promotions, he forged out on his own with Old Flame Records, releasing early material from Cloud Nothings, Potty Mouth, Shark?, Dead Confederate and many others. Honing his marketing skills on his own label and then for nearly 3 years as the digital accounts rep for Redeye distribution, setting up promotions with Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, etc, he's learned to be efficient marketing music digitally and focusing on getting his roster of bands in various TV shows, Films and video game soundtracks.
Rob is currently a Music Integration Specialist and Digital Content and Talent Strategist at AGAR Agency in Cincinnati, OH.
