Founder & CEO
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. Fox plans to distinguish EarBuds from other music players in the App Store by investing in live listening and his network from his NFL days — future users can expect to be able to jump into live sessions with professional athletes and musicians just as easily as they can with their friends. Based out of Austin, Texas, their team is working toward a Fall 2019 launch for iOS. EarBuds is a social, shared-listening app designed to bring people together over something they love: music. More than just a music player, EarBuds partners with existing Spotify and Apple Music libraries to offer users the unique ability to curate playlists and “go live,” broadcasting their music selections in a real-time session joined by their friends and followers. Founder Jason Fox’s Austin-based team plans to develop features to enhance the app’s social and listening experience, making EarBuds the go-to app for music lovers.
