Matt Ford is the sort of guy that you see at a show and signal a head nod at with a mutual understanding that it’s going to be a great night for live music. You wouldn’t have guessed that he organized the entire show and is CEO of Solstice Live, a web platform for music that services venues and local bands for hire. While speaking to Matt, I found that he was easy-going and free spirited as he didn’t mind having a conversation without shoes on.
