Innovative music database platform Jaxsta has announced the completion of a partnership deal with Australian music rights organisation APRA AMCOS (the Australasian Performing Right Association and Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society).
The deal will provide Jaxsta access to official music data from APRA AMCOS’ 100,000+ members comprised of songwriters, composers and music publishers.
This marks the 30th data partner agreement made by Jaxsta in the past 18 months including The Recording Academy, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and Merlin. The announcement comes ahead of the Jaxsta Pro launch scheduled for the final quarter of 2019.
Says Jacqui Louez Schoorl (above left), chief executive officer and co-founder, Jaxsta: “With Jaxsta.com Beta live, we are excited to now include the partnership we have been working on for some time with the team at APRA AMCOS. Their belief and support of our company’s mission is another key industry endorsement of the importance of credit where it’s due. We are proud to be working with such a dynamic and leading Performing Rights Organisation such as APRA AMCOS.”
Says Dean Ormston (above right), chief executive officer, APRA AMCOS: “We’re very proud to be the first performing rights organisation to partner with Jaxsta. In the age of digital music consumption it’s never been more crucial to ensure there is accurate, authoritative information available about the identity of the amazing Australian and New Zealand songwriters and composers behind the songs. Jaxsta gives much-deserved credit to our songwriter and composer members and their works.”
Both Jaxsta and APRA AMCOS share the same values of ensuring that those involved in the creation of music are acknowledged. While APRA AMCOS helps music creators get paid for their work, Jaxsta has created a go-to source of official music information.
Founded in 2015, Jaxsta was created to meet the need for a globally recognised comprehensive database of official credit information for artists, musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and all members of the music community.
