LyricFind, the world’s pioneer in licensed lyrics, is excited to bring multifaceted Canadian music professional Zack Werner onto its Toronto-based team. He will be joining the company to manage Business Development.

A Winnipeg native, Werner has enjoyed a varied and extensive career in the music industry as an artist, producer, record executive, entertainment lawyer, music educator, and artist manager. With a law degree and a penchant for finding and developing talent, he has done everything from opening for Alice In Chains and running his own label and management agency, to practicing law and judging Canadian Idol. For six seasons, Zack appeared on the massive hit TV series and gained a reputation as the show’s “wild card” judge for his perceptive, unexpected views.

Werner will apply his savvy and skill to cultivate relationships that will bring LyricFind’s high-quality licenced lyrics and data products to more industries and spaces, as well as expanding the impact of new tools and products LyricFind has developed for music catalog owners, publishers, and labels.

"Zack will be exploring and managing partnerships for the business on all fronts including working with labels and digital aggregators, exploring partnerships for LyricMerch, and managing acquisitions," explains LyricFind Founder and CEO, Darryl Ballantyne. "Zack’s extensive experience with labels and artists will be a valuable resource for our team."

"I loved living in St. John's, NL for the last few years, but the chance to work with LyricFind was too amazing to pass up," says Werner. "I’m eager to help grow a Canadian company with worldwide reach and cutting-edge technology, all while working to create new ways for songwriters and artists to be discovered and paid. This is a whole new music business, and I am thrilled to be a part of the future."

Jaxsta Pro to Feature LyricFind UK & LyricFind Australia Charts
 
Sydney, Australia (20 Oct. 2020) & Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 20, 2020) – Jaxsta Limited (ASX: JXT), the world’s largest public-facing, dedicated database of official music credits, today announced that the Australian and U.K. lyric charts from the pioneer in licensed lyrics, LyricFind, will be available on Jaxsta Pro.

LyricFind U.K. and LyricFind Australia rank the top trending lyric searches of each respective territory through LyricFind’s syndication service. Using LyricFind’s API to track lyric usage in the U.K. and Australia, these two charts provide more valuable research tools to Jaxsta Pro users. They also add a new way for Jaxsta Pro members to measure the chart success of their music, whether they’re the main artist or the songwriter, as well as the chart movements of their peers and any other song they wish to research.

Due to Jaxsta’s deep official music credit data, users can click on each song in the LyricFind charts and discover all the metadata for those responsible for writing, performing and recording the song. This partnership confirms Jaxsta’s reputation as one of the go-to sources for chart results for artists and non-artists, and for music discovery.

Jacqui Louez Schoorl, Jaxsta CEO and Co-Founder, stated, “One of Jaxsta’s core tenets is that music discovery should be easy and accessible to all. Lyrics are undoubtedly one of the most popular searches, and so to bring LyricFind’s exceptional U.K. and Australian charts to Jaxsta Pro is a perfect fit.”

LyricFind’s Director of Marketing Catherine Fournier said, “Lyric searches reveal how listeners connect with songs on a deeper level, making these searches highly valuable data. We’ve spent over a decade creating useful tools based on this global data and we’re excited to bring these chart insights to Jaxsta Pro’s users.”

LyricFind’s charts often reflect social and cultural events, and are a window into the way in which society reacts to movements such as Black Lives Matter, during which lyrics for songs such as H.E.R.’s “I Can’t Breathe” and Alicia Keys’ “Perfect Way To Die’ charted in the U.K. Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” charted at No. 1 in the U.K. during the pandemic, indicating a shift from office to remote work, while the Australian charts featured more thematic songs like Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M., and “Mad World” by Tears for Fears. LyricFind also sees dramatic increases for lyric searches after the death of an artist, as fans flock to these catalogs as a way to honor and remember these artists. These particular lyric trends were prominent in March and April after the passing of Kenny Rogers and Bill Withers, in June following the death of English singer Vera Lynn, and in October following the loss of Eddie Van Halen.

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.”
