Find your muse with Justin Whitman


Justin Whitman is CEO of UMuseUs, a social networking platform for musicians, as well as those who are just fans of music. In this episode of Innovators & Entrepreneurs, Whitman, a musician, discovered the need for access to resources and collaboration. 

“We allow individuals to create a band from scratch,” Whitman said. “Imagine you like this drummer, singer, bass player, or guitarist – or you want to add a fiddler into it – you’re going to hit ‘okay’ and it will spit out what the band sounds like but they’re never met. You’re going to float it across all your social platforms and vote. The top 15 or 20 bands, we’ll fly them out to West Virginia, and do the ultimate battle of the bands – televised live!”
