Jaxsta Scoops U.S. Metadata Award
Jaxsta is in the winner’s circle.
The Australian-created official music credits database is awarded the Master of Metadata, one of several categories at Music Biz’s 2023 Bizzy Awards.
Led by CEO Beth Appleton, Jaxsta is saluted for making a “significant impact in the area of data processing, credit clarification, streamlining or otherwise promoting clean data and best practices,” explains the U.S.-based Music Biz.
Since launching 10 years ago, Jaxsta has grown to be the world’s largest dedicated database of official music credits, with a data set that includes upwards of 55 million recordings and almost 15 million works which are matched, deep-linked and searchable by multiple industry identifiers.
“We are exceptionally proud to be recognised by the Music Business Association for our excellence in metadata,” comments Appleton in a statement.
“It is critical that the industry has one verified source of truth and that we continually value and insist on official credits. Only by doing this, can we ensure that Creators are paid quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.”
Adds Jaxsta CTO Michael Stone: “It has been great to see how Jaxsta’s data and APIs are being used to improve the payment of royalties as well as enable innovative new services to all parts of the music industry. This award is a testament to the trust placed in Jaxsta by our label partners.”
The Master of Metadata honour comes just days after the launch of Vinyl.com, a wax aficionado’s dream.
The online platform connects music fans with a warehouse of records, with each piece carrying deep-dive details on the many and varied creators.
Songtradr’s Paul Wiltshire has described the Vinyl platform, more than six months in the making, as “transformational”.
