ABOUT THE TEAM
Sam O’Connell – Co-Creator / CEO
Sam is the CEO and handles marketing, outreach, and “big picture” goal setting and tracking. He attended Pittsburgh U for filmography and has a professional background in graphic design. Sam quit his job earlier this year to be more available to Tunefly, and has since been our main man for content creation and social media outreach.
Matt Simoncavage – Co-Creator / CTO
Lyz Klein – Managment / CFO
Lyz is Tunefly’s CFO and a licensed CPA whose career has centered around small business. Sam and Matt brought her into the picture to help with some money questions, but she was crazy about the idea and they couldn’t get rid of her. She handles the books, tax compliance, and legal issues like copyright and licensing and DMCA notices. She had a successful accounting firm and has downsized it to dedicate her skills to Tunefly, even going as far to fire her one and only employee, and good friend, Charlie.
Charlie Lukasavage – Director of Sales
Charlie isn’t a founder, but is Tunefly’s first unofficial employee. He has a background in sales and customer accounts and has been a huge asset to Tunefly since joining us a few months ago. Right now he’s working for beer, but we promised we’d start paying him ASAP.
WHAT IS TUNEFLY?
In early 2015, friends Matt and Sam realized there were some big problems with the way musicians shared their material. Something had to be done, so they came up with a plan and started building. By the end of the year, they had a prototype of what would become the world’s first self-contained mobile music community. In 2016, that prototype came to life.
Tunefly is to music what Instagram is to photography; a mobile community. The app lets users record, share, and interact with songs and playlists all from their phones. This app has been built on the AngularJS / Ionic platform and is currently available on iOS and Android.
|Release Date – September 16, 2016
Price – Free!
|Platforms – iOS App Store | Google Play Store|
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Tunefly works like most social platforms — with posts!
Share original songs and discover new material from around the world. You can record your songs directly in the app and give them an audience in minutes. Customize your music posts with your own album artwork, caption and more.
Mixtapes, music news, and exclusive video content are just a few of the awesome features you’ll find in the app. Tunefly Charts showcase musicians with new or popular material, and Tunefly Challenges encourage musicians to constantly be pushing the creative envelope. One of the most exciting breakthroughs has been Tunefly Live, which allows anyone on the app to discover live music, shows, concerts, and open mics happening near them.
