I think I have the best job on Earth. I get to wake up and work with some of the sharpest individuals I’ve ever met. After retiring from the NFL, I wanted to spend time working closely with music and exploring the possibilities around music being social. We have an amazing team, and I’m responsible for leading to ensure we reach our destination: developing EarBuds as a truly social music app.
Watching Cam Newton’s warmup, Jason wondered what kind of music he played to gear up for a big win. This memory stayed in Fox’s mind long after he hung up his cleats for good.
After six years playing professional football for the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions, Fort Worth native Jason Fox founded EarBuds, the first social-focused music-sharing platform.
Imagine the music that makes you feel your best — the songs you turn up on the radio, the ones that always get you dancing. Now imagine that you could share that feeling with your friends, live. Every listening session is an opportunity to connect and discover new music. Soon you’ll even be able to listen in while pro athletes work out or to the green room warm-up playlist before your favorite band takes the stage. EarBuds lets you get in the moment from wherever you are.
Live sessions are the beat that keeps EarBuds going. Users can host sessions created from playlists they’ve curated in Spotify or Apple Music, and then friends, followers, and new connections can join to listen alongside the host. As a listener, you have the freedom to join and follow users that stream playlists that fit your tastes.
