We hosted a group of kids here last week that are part of an organization called Road Recovery. Matt Harmon (GM), Sonya Kolowrat (VP Of Communications and Press), Nabil Ayers (Label Manager-4AD) and Todd Netter (Product Manager) all provided extensive time, CDs and insight into the inner-workings of the label group and individual career paths.
