Vinnie Fiorello is a founding member and chief lyricist of the seminal punk band Less Than Jake. He is the co-founder of Fueled By Ramen Records, a label acquired by Warner Music Group in 2006 that launched the careers of alternative music luminaries like Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, and Panic! At the Disco. His media company, Paper + Plastick, was founded in 2007 and releases music in all formats (including collectible vinyl), books, toys, and other merchandise. Fiorello expanded his entrepreneurial endeavors in 2015 by opening Wunderland Custom Tattooing (named after his successful toy brand, Wunderland War, featuring over 15 characters and 200 variations). He is also an author of children's books and comic books and just released short stories book 6/19. He lives with his wife and daughter in Gainesville, Fl.
We talk about everything you want to hear about. Since Vinnie left the band we talk about his life after Less Than Jake, Gainesville, FL and how Vinnie first started playing and writing music with Chris Demakes. We also talk about tips, strategies and philosophies for success in the new world for creatives and artists, Music business and the Creative Business, Kickstarter advice and all about his new Music and Art project, The Inevitables.
This episode will inspire you to create something. Or buy something...Not sure which. Maybe both!
