Songtrust, the world's largest technology solution for global music royalty collection service and publishing administration, announced today a new business partnership with creator platform Audiomack.
Through this partnership, we will now offer our global publishing administration to even more entrepreneurial songwriters and producers and continue the mission of empowering independent creators to access the royalties they are earning. In 2018, Songtrust grew significantly and now represents clients with songwriting credits on some of the biggest hits on the charts including tracks by Rich Brian, BlocBoy JB, ScHoolboy Q, 21 Savage, Lil Mosey and more.
“Audiomack is a true music business innovator,” said Songtrust’s Global Head of Business Development Molly Neuman. “Dave and David were truly prescient in providing creators the tools to develop their audience and empowering creators to design their careers and businesses on their own terms. Adding global publishing administration will be of great benefit to both their creative work and their business toolkit.”
“Audiomack was founded to draw the shortest line of connection between artists and listeners. We treat our artists like they deserve to be treated: as professionals building careers that will change the face of music,” said Audiomack CEO and co-founder Dave Macli. “With Songtrust, we will take a huge step forward in educating artists on the resources they need to maximize their revenue and fully understand their rights, advancing Audiomack’s mission of equitably compensating and supporting the creators who come to our platform to move music forward.”
Founded in 2012 by friends and co-founders Dave Ponte and David Macli, Audiomack exists as a youth-driven, artist-first music streaming platform. Over the years, it has been on the forefront of watershed moments in hip-hop and greater music culture. Key releases on the platform include Chance The Rapper’s seminal 'Acid Rap' mixtape, J. Cole’s fabled 'Truly Yours 1 and 2', and most recently, the premiere of Eminem’s eviscerating Machine Gun Kelly diss track "Kill Shot.”
In that breath, Audiomack is focused on more than just hip-hop and electronic music. Latin, reggae, afrobeats, and other emerging genres can find a home and hungry audience on the platform. Artist-first in their ethos, Audiomack not only has direct licensing deals with artists, but also has licensing deals with powerhouse companies such as Empire, 300, Mad Decent, Foundation, and more. With over one million daily active users, Audiomack exists now as a cutting edge streaming platform engrossed in music culture and consistently moving music forward.
