The pioneer in licensed lyrics, LyricFind, continues to expand into new regions and languages. The company is announcing two new remote teams in India and South Africa. In addition, its Vietnam team will now cover significant new East Asian languages.

“As something we’ve long anticipated, the demand for lyrics in a wide range of languages continues to grow,” explains LyricFind CEO Darryl Ballantyne. “We’re committed to offering high-quality, vetted, licensed lyrics to service providers, platforms, and fans around the world, and we’ve found the best way to do that is to invest in local organizations that have the right expertise to provide the level of service our partners expect.”

LyricFind’s new India service has focused on extensive charts and back catalog in Hindi and Marathi, with more regional languages on the way. In addition to the new language team in India, LyricFind’s long-standing team based in Hanoi, Vietnam has scaled up to expand its capacity, adding lyrics in both Cantonese and Mandarin to its current roster which includes Malay, Bahasa, Thai, Tagalog and Vietnamese. 

LyricFind’s Johannesburg team will cover ten essential southern African languages including Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho, Xhosa, Tsonga, Venda, Tswana, Northern Sotho, Swati, and Ndebele. Other African languages are in the works for later this year. “Music consumption across Africa and Asia is growing rapidly, and lyrics have a powerful part to play in this growth,” Ballantyne says. “We’re excited to add these ten languages, and counting, to our offerings.” 

This expansion is an extension of LyricFind’s commitment to cultivating the highest quality lyrics in the industry. “We have the largest publishing team in the world, and the highest number of professional lyric editors in the business. The reason major partners like Google and Amazon turn to us as a primary lyrics provider is for the proven quality our process generates, and our focus on building a substantial local presence and expertise around the world to ensure that,” notes Ballantyne. “Our teams know the local music landscape and work tirelessly to gather, edit, and timestamp lyrics in their territories’ respective spoken languages. Well-trained, professional teams with local knowledge in important markets are the key to the extensive coverage and the on-going excellence of our service.”

LyricFind’s merchandise service, LyricMerch, is announcing its first marketplace partnership with eBay, one of the world's largest and most vibrant marketplaces. LyricMerch is licensed to create a range of merchandise bearing lyrics from fan-favorite songs, all of which are now available on the marketplace. As part of the partnership, LyricFind and eBay will also collaborate to create targeted merch campaigns that are tailor-made for shoppers.

“eBay is a trusted online platform for customers looking for unique gifts and niche items, which is what LyricMerch offers,” says Darryl Ballantyne, Founder & CEO of LyricFind and LyricMerch. “Having our products available on eBay and their global shoppers allows us to lean into a marketplace that already caters to our target audiences, making this a natural partnership.”

LyricMerch is the only producer of fully licensed apparel and lifestyle items featuring top artists’ lyrics and on-trend designs. “Licensing a lyric means more than just using it with permission. It means royalties go to the people who make music happen - the songwriters and rights holders,” explains Ballantyne. “When you purchase a LyricMerch t-shirt or mug, your purchase earns money for the writers and teams behind the lyrics.” As the collaboration moves forward, eBay’s insights will help better customize LyricMerch to appeal to its existing customers.

“Shoppers come to eBay for its breadth of rare, unique and right now inventory, from that one ‘I can’t believe I found it’ piece to the latest trending items,” said Chelsea Walsh, Senior Category Manager of Media at eBay. “LyricMerch and its range of curated offerings will be perfectly at home on our marketplace, and shoppers will be thrilled to find that perfect piece of apparel or merch that reps their favorite artists.”

Music fans and eBay customers will get their first taste of the collaboration this holiday season with a special LyricMerch gift guide. From The Rolling Stones and David Bowie to Ariana Grande, the exclusive designs will be perfect for the rock lovers and millenial pop fans on shoppers’ gifting lists.

LyricFind is pleased to announce a partnership with Fender Music Instruments Corporation, to provide lyrics to its new app, Fender Songs. The app allows users to practice, play along, and perform to millions of their favorite songs on guitar, ukulele or piano.

Fender Songs will draw on LyricFind’s extensive database of lyrics in more than a dozen languages, with lyrics that are fully vetted to get both aspiring and experienced players singing the right words along with their favorites. The integration of lyrics in Fender Songs weaves seamlessly into the app’s on-demand song learning for beginners and experienced players alike. The app provides several ways to access lyrics, including lyric overviews in practice mode and a “karaoke-style” scrolling lyrics in play-along mode.

"Lyrics play a powerful role in deepening our relationship to music, especially when we move from listeners to students and aspiring artists,” said LyricFind’s VP of Sales, Roy Hennig. “We're thrilled to partner with such a storied instrument and music brand to encourage more fans to become music makers."

“We’re excited to expand our digital products offering with Fender Songs. Songs will allow our players to access practically any song they want and provide quick and easy-to-learn chords they can practice directly on the app,” said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager of Fender Digital. “Working with LyricFind, publishers and record labels, we’ve been able to ensure artists' songs and lyrics are fully licensed, taking our relationships with them to a new level.”

LyricFind has worked for more than a decade to bring lyrics into new digital settings and formats, where musicians and fans want them most. By making sure lyrics are everywhere and fully licensed, LyricFind has created a new revenue stream for songwriters, artists, and publishers, strengthening listener engagement in the process.
