GM is a social music community with cross-platform streaming integrations & expressive ways to share, discover, and support music. Imagine if Instagram + Sonos had a kid and Reddit + Patreon had a kid and then those two kids had a kid. That's us.
WHY GREY MATTER?
When you meet someone, the grey matter in your brain helps process how you feel when you interact with that person. Likewise, grey matter helps process the feelings conjured by music. Different melodies, harmonies, and rhythms create unique reactions in each and every one of us. It helps us feel, makes us distinct, and brings us together.
The emotional connection that happens around music needs human beings. But we live in an era where the convenience of tech shouts louder than our friends. Algorithms and the absence of social tools make people nonessential to today’s streaming experience, which endangers the community that music both needs and makes necessary. While there is no substitute for real-life connection, there should be a digital solution that better supports it. And in the absence of live events, when digital spaces are all we have, music needs people and community more than ever.
We’re building Grey Matter to be that digital solution. Our vision is a global music community dedicated entirely to sharing, discovering, and supporting music. If that sounds dope, come build it with us.
We’re a team of musicians, DJs, writers, independent music marketers, curators, and fans. We’re building Grey Matter with and for the people that create the most value in the music industry: artists and the humans that discover their music, share it with their communities, and support their art.
