We’re speaking to Austin locals to discover their favorite work mixes. What do you rock out to when it’s time to get shit done? Send us your playlist at [email protected].

During his pro football playing days, Jason Fox once glanced at quarterback Cam Newton in pregame warmups and wondered what Newton had bumping on his headphones. That brief thought planted a seed.

Years later after retiring from the NFL, Fox moved to Austin and launched EarBuds, a music streaming app that allows people to sync their existing Apple Music or Spotify accounts and live stream their music to friends, family, or the general public.

Fox shared with us his go-to music playlist, which includes a wide variety of artists and genres.

“This has been my top playlist during quarantine,” he said. “It’s a great mix of mostly country and hip-hop. It includes some of my favorite artists like Luke Combs, Kolby Cooper, Koe Wetzel, and Post Malone. Great for working out or around-the-house listening.”
