Episode #91: Liner Notes In The Digital Age

What if there were an IMDB for music? Not only would fans be able to dig deeper into their favorite albums, but producers, artists, and other collaborators could catalog their contributions, labels could track data more easily, and businesses would have all of the information they need to license a song right at their fingertips. On this episode, we talk with a new service called Jaxsta. CEO Jacqui Louez Schoorl and Head of Licensing Dick Huey discuss how Jaxsta could revolutionize music data use and its accessibility. Then, we talk with one of our favorite music databases and marketplaces, Discogs. Chief Product Officer Nik Kinloch demonstrates how music fans and record collectors can take advantage of Discogs’ music database (plus we hear about some new features!).
