Like most people, we consider ourselves music lovers. Nothing beats the experience of live music- everything from the sound system pumping in your chest, to the like-minded strangers you meet in line, to the weeks of anticipation before seeing your favorite artist for the first time.
Not only are live events our favorite thing, but they’re also the best way for musicians to make money, accounting for the fastest growing part of today’s music industry. This is why we were shocked to discover that nearly half of concert tickets still go unsold every year, leaving money out of the artists’ pockets, and leaving everyone else out from incredible experiences.
Tutti fixes this problem: we help you discover new music in your area for a low monthly fee. There’s no more need to spend your night sitting at home on Netflix, or going out to your shitty neighborhood bar. Now you can always experience the best events in your city for a price you can afford.
From the moment I picked up a flute as an 8 year old kid there was no turning back. My whole life I performed in jazz, ska, funk and classical music groups. I practiced flute and saxophone for hours a day. I obsessed over new artists with my blog as a teenager, interviewing undiscovered acts like The Chainsmokers and Louis The Child. These days I’m still right where I started, working in music on management for internationally charting artists like Hermitude and Miami Horror, and running press campaigns for companies like Atlantic Records and Ultra Music.
Just like Max, I got my roots in classical music. Like every good Asian child, it started out with my parents making me practice piano every day, but slowly turned into a passion, ending up with me studying music at the New England Conservatory and Harvard. More recently, I kept my love for the arts and entertainment, helping Disney orchestrate their acquisition of 21st Century Fox, and working with Red Bull on their business strategy and various entertainment initiatives.
In the midst of an existential crisis- the one most young adults go through after realizing childhood doesn’t last forever- I had a moment of clarity. I was doing the macarena on the stage of a Brooklyn nightclub next to Thomas Pentz, Jaan Umru Rothernberg, and David Burd while Magnus August Høiberg blasted New Freezer by Rich the Kid from his CDJ’s. And I realized, in that moment, that everything would be ok… because I had music, and more moments ahead of me like that one- thanks to music.
