Fostering Friendships in the Music Industry – Interview with Thomas Falcone (Usher, Big Sean, Dillon Francis)

This week we have Thomas Falcone on the bus! Thomas and I have been friends for a while. He has toured around the world – and I have been lucky enough to have toured with him myself. AV Club reporting for Duty. He started in the Warped Tour world, made his way through hip hop, DJs, and now spends most of his time with the biggest artists you know – such as Big Sean, Shawn Mendes, and John Mayer. Anyway, if there is one thing Thomas is a pro at – it’s being a good dude. He fills every room he enters with his good vibes and this week, we take a dive into what it takes to navigate this industry and make friends along the way.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• How Thomas started photography
