Matt Pinfield is a music personality, TV host, radio DJ, and video DJ most notably for MTV and VH1. Matt also worked as Vice President of A&R and Artist Development for Columbia Records.
A man of many titles, Matt Pinfield has lived more life than a dozen people combined could compare. Recently seven months sober, Matt joins Hilary and Jason this week to discuss his life in music and his own road to recovery. Matt always wanted to have a career in the music business, which he very successfully attained; however, the business began to cause a lot of problems in his personal life. Many times, the music industry and substance abuse go hand-in-hand and Matt discusses how he began to get caught up in the lifestyle of his career. He also talks about trying moments in his life that have tested his sobriety including a near fatal accident that occurred two years ago as well as the current isolation forced upon by COVID-19. Today, Matt is grateful to be alive and explains how being of service and staying active have been the true keys to his sobriety. He stresses, in a world full of negativity, it’s important to focus on the positive things and the positive people in it.
