Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2017
Songistry, an online community for songwriters and music professionals worldwide, announces its inclusion as one of the seven companies to join Canadian Music Week’s ‘CMW Startup Launch Pad’ competition, to be held in Toronto on April 18, 2017.
The selection of Songistry is the result of a review of hundreds of applications from businesses throughout the music industry, in which startups have an opportunity for increased exposure to – and investment from – top executives, financiers, producers and sundry experts in this field.
“It is an honor to be one of the contestants at ‘CMW Startup Launch Pad,’ which is a testament to the international appeal of Songistry. Our platform is not only a source of empowerment for Canadian songwriters; it is the destination for fellow artists around the globe, where we provide metadata management and detailed intelligence for every stakeholder of relevance, from Performance Rights Organizations to Publishers to Record Labels to Music Supervisors to Digital Service Providers to Advertisers,” says Justin Gray, Founder of Songistry.
One of Songistry’s key features offers unpublished songwriters access to paid opportunities. For example: Since ninety-six percent of members of Performance Rights Organizations are unpublished songwriters, most of whom earn less than $150 per year from their music, Songistry enables these individuals to enter a marketplace where they can license their songs for a fee – with speed and simplicity.
“Songistry delivers valuable benefits to the music industry, in terms of the storage, dissemination, delivery and licensure of songs. The platform’s management of copyrights and metadata solves a critical challenge. We need this service now more than ever,” says Chris Taylor, Advisor to Songistry and Global President of One Entertainment Music.
With headquarters in Canada and the United States, Songistry is the product of extensive research and development by Justin Gray, a multi-award winning record producer and songwriter. Through the support of Curtis Serna, a technology entrepreneur and investor, Songistry is now the go-to site for collaboration, community, metadata management and a marketplace for music professionals worldwide.
