Mic Drop Music was created and founded by Jessica O’Connor. She graduated with her degree in Editing, Writing, and Media from Florida State University in just 3.5 years. After graduating from FSU in December 2017, she decided to create her own brand of music media. While she has goals of one day working for a major network like MTV, Vice, or E!; for now she’s building her own brand. O’Connor started as a “one man band.” She designed the website from scratch, wrote all interviews, took all photos, and edited her own videos. However, the brand grew quicker than anticipated and soon it became to much to handle on her own. She now oversees a staff of 9 writers, photographers, and videographers. She prides herself on helping other young artists get their break in the highly competitive entertainment industry. Since she began her journey in music media with an internship with Alternative Nation, she has attended major festivals such as Lollapalooza, VooDoo, Reggae Rise Up, Gasparilla Music Festival, and Bonnaroo to do press work. Her goal behind creating this website is to shine light on up and comers, while also appreciating the superstars.

Our mission is to create a positive space of honest media, inclusive of all genres of music, to be enjoyed by all kinds of people.
