Today’s Tool Tuesday is a rising app by the name of Jammcard, the Music Professionals Network.

Pro drummer Elmo Lovano had the idea for Jammcard years before taking the entrepreneurial jump to put it in motion.

Since it’s launch, Jammcard has thousands of vetted professional musicians on the app in Los Angeles alone, including 450 music directors. They plan to launch the app in other cities in the near future.

Jammcard is quickly becoming the LinkedIn or IMDB for music players.

Why is this important to managers, labels, agents, and the rest of our industry? Because Jammcard is the easiest way to build bands for your artists.

The app has helped put together bands for acts ranging from ODESZA to PartyNextDoor to Fifth Harmony.

Elmo and his team have created a community in the app and outside of it through content, such as a YouTube series called “How I Got the Gig”, and live events, such as the JammJam.

Jammcard tells the stories of the players behind the scenes by shining a light on them in a variety of unique ways – Kendrick Lamar’s drummer reveled in the fact he was on the front page of the Grammys website due to his affiliation with Jammcard.

The amount of talent on the app is astonishing and is quickly becoming an A&R resource for managers and labels.

Through a hyper engaged community, Jammcard will eventually systematize the way bands are assembled and standardize the best practices for band members and the teams hiring them. In the process, Elmo is making the process of collaborating with great musicians easier for everyone.
