He will report to CEO Dominic Pandiscia.  The Set FM platform allows artists to capture, promote and sell recordings of the live performances and was developed and launched by Peterson in 2012.  The free service creates new revenue streams for performing artists and fits well into PledgeMusic's expanding direct-to-fan ecosystem.

Set FM joins recently acquired Noise Trade in the PledgeMusic family.  they have a base of more than 3 million music fans that engage directly with artists they love.  The technologies give over 50,0000 artists and musicians a way to connect with fans and derive more revenue.

"The alignment of Set FM with Noise Trade into PledgeMusic creates a singular ecosystem where artists of every level of development can create content and use that content to grow and manage their fan base. Our ultimate goal is helping artists and labels generate significant revenue while delivering a great experience for superfans, and having Matt lead our efforts in one of the most thriving music towns on the map is very exciting.” 

Peterson has 13 years in the mobile content business and has launched and grown mobile content ecosystems and is also a lifelong musician.  He has worked at Saffron Digital, Samsung Telecommunications America and AT&T Mobility.  Set FM has been on the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce "A-List" of the city's most promising startups.

“Set FM exists to change the way that artists and fans interact, a philosophy at the very core of what makes Pledge Music so special," said Peterson. Combining our expertise in creating high-value live content with PledgeMusic's best-of-breed platform for directly engaging fans will create a richer experience for all involved.“
