LyricFind Partnership with Downtown Music Publishing to Expand Globally

The world's leader in lyric licensing, LyricFind has strengthened its licensing partnership with Downtown Music Publishing, a leading music rights management company based in New York City.

LyricFind has recently added Downtown’s complete worldwide catalogue of rights, including works by world-renowned artists ranging from John Lennon and Nikki Sixx to One Direction and Sturgill Simpson. This deal enables lyrics from highly-searched, Downtown-represented songwriters to be made available to Deezer, Pandora, Amazon, and hundreds of other music platforms, apps, and websites whose lyrics are powered by LyricFind.

“We’re thrilled to expand our deal with Downtown Music Publishing,” says LyricFind founder and CEO Darryl Ballantyne. “Downtown represents a stellar array of songwriters and we are excited about the depth and quality this expansion will add to our existing partnership.”

Justin Kalifowitz, Downtown’s CEO noted that “Lyrics, on a stand-alone basis, are one of the world’s most precious art forms. The way in which they are cited,  studied, shared and honored truly knows no bounds. We are proud to partner with Lyricfind in licensing and distributing our lyrics to music fans around the world.”
