Gabe Warshaw grew up in the East Village and immersed himself in the neighborhood’s rich jazz music scene at a very young age. He started playing the drums when he was four years old and studied music throughout his schooling, attending the Lincoln Center’s Middle School Jazz Academy and the Manhattan School of Music’s pre-college program.
In 2019, he opened his own studio in downtown Brooklyn, where he collaborates with other musicians and producers — and where the idea for Baton was born. Warshaw, a Tisch graduate student in the school’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, founded Baton to address problems he saw across the music industry. Warshaw and his team want to make the sharing of recorded material more secure between artists and producers in the music industry and beyond.
In an interview with WSN, Warshaw spoke more about his background in the music industry, discussed how Baton protects artists’ work and explained why his startup has already gained support from several Grammy-winning producers.
