Miguel Martín (LyricsGaps) – Interview (Part 2)

This is the second (and final) part of the interview I conducted with Miguel Martín from LyricsGaps. Check out how the conversation started here!



When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I have been a music lover since I was a child, but I honestly can’t remember the first album I purchased. Nevertheless, I remember that I liked Aerosmith a lot, so maybe it was one of their albums.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

No, I don’t not have enough talent.

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

I am always listening to the radio, so generally I like all the knd of music that comes through it. These last days I have been listening more than usual to Carlos Jean’s new song, “Lead The Way”. Also to “Who´s That Chick” by David Guetta, and “On The Floor” by Jennifer Lopez. You can find all these tracks (and many others) in lyricsgaps.com. Continue reading

Miguel Martín (LyricsGaps) – Interview (Part 1)

I’ve had the pleasure to interview Miguel Martín from LyricsGaps, a startup I reviewed two weeks ago, and which (as a non-native speaker of English) I found more than interesting.

Below you will find the first part of the interview. Part 2 (“Music & You”) can be read here.


Full Name: Miguel Martín
Age: 30
Startup: LyricsGaps.com
Position: CEO



Tell us a little about your startup. How was it conceived? What are its most distinctive features in your opinion?

I have been studying English since I was a child, and (in my case) the funniest and easiest way to learn the language was when teachers used songs. I think this is the best way of learning new vocabulary, as this allows you to practise your English everywhere.

What did the idea for LyricsGaps came to you?

It was a few months ago, when I was studying at the Official School of Languages in my city. I suddenly had the idea of mixing my two main interests, the music and the net.

What has been the response so far? In which countries has it been more successful?

Well, nowadays it is really difficult to answer this question, but I can tell you that during this time we have been very well-accepted online, and the number of users of lyricsgaps.com has been increasing day by day.

What features can we expect to see implemented in future revisions?

We are always thinking about how we can improve our site, for instance nowadays we are thinking about increasing the number of supported languages. And we are also thinking about adding rankings …

These are just two examples of the things we have to work on in the months to come here at lyricsgaps.com. Continue reading
