Told through the eyes of quirky, charming, and humble bandmates: Shawn, Jon, Matt, and Justin, Bleeding Audio is an intimate portrait detailing the promising career of The Matches, their defeating breakup, and their inspiring reunion; as they reflect on what success truly means for musicians in today's digital industry. Their story overlaps with the drastic changes the music industry has undergone since the takeover of the digital revolution—from declining sales, to excessive touring, to illegal downloading and streaming. With interviews from some of music’s biggest names, Chelsea Christer’s loving tribute tracks The Matches’ history and recent reunion to dig deeper into the root of the challenges the average musician faces in the digital age of the industry—and how artists can navigate their careers today.
