Ian got a master’s in machine learning at Cambridge and loves dystopian robot takeover narratives. Seven years ago, Ian realized being a choirboy came with no street cred, so he started DJing hip-hop, funk, drum & bass, and grime. Ian quit his job at Bain & Company, Singapore to start Songkick.
Pete threw summer festivals in his backyard between years in his law degree at Cambridge. (He grew up in the middle of nowhere. It was a big backyard.) Thankful to leave law behind, Pete worked at a small tech consultancy selling enterprise software before quitting to start Songkick.
Michelle studied English and philosophy at Columbia before receiving her master’s in English at Cambridge, all of which was training for writing the snappy copy you read on Songkick. She was the managing editor of Theme magazine before starting Songkick.
Phil received a PhD in machine learning from Cambridge and is responsible for leading Songkick’s small but mighty technical team. He plays bass guitar and helped run Cambridge’s student radio station. Phil was doing postdoctoral research at Cambridge on predictive text entry methods and search algorithms before he quit to join Songkick.
