Hi. I’m Aaron.
Joseph and I were both tired of every song idea ending up being captured as a voice memo with only the most basic meta data attached to it. We were tired of our lyrics ending up as fragments between shopping lists and reminders. In the spring of 2013, I quit my job at Adobe to pursue working on the initial designs of Hum. After seeing my sketches, Joseph spent the next few weeks on the branding.
We realized we had designs for a tool that would solve all our shared frustrations with songwriting in a modern age. We showed it to all our songwriter friends and they agreed. We spent the next six months building and polishing the first version, enlisting the help of Ellen Shapiro to do the heavy lifting on the code side of things while I built the user interface.
We’re incredibly proud of Hum. It’s available now on the App Store.
