Paul Wiltshire’s Songtradr acquires music tech & data biz, Tunefind
Music licensing marketplace Songtradr has acquired Tunefind, one of the world’s most comprehensive online sources of data for music in television, film and video games.
The acquisition follows a string of other recent deals by Songtradr, including Pretzel and Song Zu, and strategic investment into music credits database, Jaxsta.
“Tunefind is a key trusted industry resource for music use across all major entertainment formats,” Songtradr’s Australian LA-based CEO, Paul Wiltshire, said.
“The depth of its database and coverage is unparalleled.
“As we continue our ambition to develop the best tools for B2B music discovery, Tunefind’s encyclopedia of music used in TV, film and gaming has considerable unrealized value, and equally our extensive data from advertising music use will expand the Tunefind offering.”

Along with an active community of millions of monthly users, the company has partnered with over 250 of the world’s top music supervisors to directly source song data.
Tunefind also provides API data services to clients such as Plex, Chartmetric, and other key music industry partners and powers the Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter’s TV Music Chart.
“We’re very excited about this new phase in the Tunefind journey,” Amanda Byers said, managing director of Tunefind. “The Songtradr ecosystem and technology accelerates Tunefind from a product and data perspective so we can continue to provide the best resource for the industry.”
Other acquisitions by Songtradr over the past 12 months are Big Sync Music and Cuesongs. It hired local industry veteran David Sayer last October as its new director of premium music.
