He be like Napster doesn't scare me fool... Nathan sits down with Mark Capon, co-owner of Harvest Records for the 41st episode of the Finding Asheville podcast. They chat about growing up in Jacksonville, Fla., why he decided to pick up a bass instead of the guitar or drums at the age of 13, why he knew he was always going to do something he enjoyed for a living, why naivety played a little role in Harvest Record’s success, what it is like to also manage bands on the side, why at the end of the day you should only compete with yourself and not compare yourself to others, and why managing bands full time may be his next gig.
