About Chris Barton

Chris Barton: The Maestro Behind Shazam

The world of music identification was completely transformed when Chris Barton envisioned a tool to identify any song playing around him. By creating Shazam, Chris did not just introduce an app to the world; he reshaped the way the world discovers music.

For the uninitiated, Shazam is not just any music identification tool; it's a piece of tech magic. Shazam is a revolutionary app designed to identify music playing in the surrounding environment. With Shazam, Chris shed light on how technology can deliver solutions to everyday challenges — in this case, effortlessly identifying tracks. The goal of Shazam is to transform our interaction with music, whether we're using basic mobile phones or advanced devices.
