Om Podcasten

On Top of the Covers is a weekly podcast by ORLOVE and features inspirational stories of people contributing to the culture of music... creatively, artistically, personally, and professionally. Hosted by Matt Gottesman (Director of ORLOVE Brands & host of the successful Forbes feat. podcast, The Hustle Sold Separately), this show aims to bridge the gap between artists, music, and fans globally, focusing on the "culture" of music as a whole and less on the "corporate." Being that music is a common bond amongst all of us, we believe in opening up the conversation to explore all facets of the art, its creative contributors, and their missions.
