Robust data integration enables SoundExchange to connect artists to both old and new recordings on the front end, streamlining monthly royalty distributions
WASHINGTON, April 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SoundExchange, the premier music tech organization powering the future of music, and Music Story, a global leader in music metadata, today announced a new data partnership to enhance SoundExchange’s already authoritative sound recordings database. Music Story’s high-quality contributor data for new and old recordings will further minimize the need for manual claiming and bolster SoundExchange’s ongoing commitment to ensure metadata accuracy in monthly royalty payments to registered creators.
“This integration is the latest step forward in SoundExchange’s pursuit of partnerships and technologies that maximize our performer lineups, so creators are compensated accurately in our monthly distributions,” said Michael Huppe, President and CEO of SoundExchange. “Music Story’s robust data will help reduce the number of creators missing out on royalties for their contributions.”
Music Story provides SoundExchange with deep technical expertise, a broad base of musical knowledge and the ability to work closely with its engineering team.
