Love Music? Groovebug Creates Personalized Interactive Music Magazines for iPad
Jul 18, 2011
You love music, and not just listening to it, but everything about the whole industry – learning about the artists you like, keeping tabs on their concert schedules, discovering new artists, going to concerts whenever possible, etc.
Chicago-based Groovebug has got just the app for you when it’s released on the App Store this summer. Groovebug is an interactive music magazine for the iPad that scans your music, pulls content from blogs, website, and the cloud related to your favorite artists, and suggests similar artists. Your music collection determines the content, so it’s totally personalized based on what you like.
Groovebug’s founders have brought together their love of music with their deep knowledge of programming to produce this really cool app:
- Jeremiah Seraphine, a MSc candidate of Integrated Marketing Communications with a concentration in Direct and Interactive Marketing, who has worked in the music industry as a record label owner, promoter, internationally touring DJ, and producer.
- Neal Ehardt, a drummer who is pursuing a degree in Computer Science from Northwestern University.
- Nishant Verman, a recent graduate of the Kellogg MBA program at Northwestern University with a Masters in Computer Science from Stanford University and a background in venture capital and investment banking.
If you are coming to Tech Cocktail Chicago/Our 5th Anniversary Birthday Bash on Thursday night, definitely stop by to meet the team, as they are one of our showcased startups and will be demoing the app.
