Mike McCready

Music Xray
Founder & CEO
Despite some expensive early lessons, Mike McCready had some success as an entrepreneur. Later on, he had some success as a musician. Today, McCready combines his passions for business and music by leading the company he co-founded, Music Xray. Millions of songs are created and uploaded to the web each year, making it harder than ever for musicians to stand out. Hit songs and acts (and lots of other commercially viable music and bands) are out there, but the industry has no way of efficiently and consistently identifying them. Music Xray’s sophisticated filtering system creates a level playing field for musicians, enabling them to reach virtually any industry professional and receive a guaranteed response. It helps the industry quickly find the needles in the haystack. Currently, the industry selects roughly 700 songs and acts for deals each month via Music Xray and the company is experimenting with ways to invest in the highest potential songs and acts.
