Kristin Grant, Founder.

"Westcott is an evolution of my experiences in the music industry from my time at Next Big Sound, to marketing Barrington Levy's Grammy nominated album, working as an entertainment analyst, managing global playlist strategies at Universal Music to writing about the intersection of technology and music as a contributor in Forbes. I think music is the heart rate monitor of culture and when it spikes we pay attention."

Now, working with Westcott has allowed me to combine my two greatest passions and build a revolutionary tool for the music industry at large, and I couldn't be more excited."
