There would be no music business if there were no songwriters. Publishers are the vital piece of the puzzle that connects them with lucrative opportunities to get that music heard. 

Songwriter Pages

An evolution from static song credits, Songwriter Pages are a way for

collaborators, industry partners, and fans to dive deeper into the

creators behind some of their favorite songs. They’re accessible from

Song Credits on Spotify.

What Tayla Parx, who’s written songs with Ariana GrandeJanelle

Monáe and many others, likes about having a Songwriter Page is, “my

fans’ ability to connect with me in a different way, as a songwriter not

just as an artist. And it’s much easier to keep up with the latest coming

from me if you have it all in one place to access.”

From the industry side, Songwriter Pages are also a powerful tool.

“They’ve helped songwriters land recording and writing sessions,”

says Ed Holland, a publisher at BMG. “They help our sync

department pitch to music supervisors. They’re also incredible

marketing and promotional tools.”

Written By Playlists

 

Each Songwriter Page also comes with a Written By playlist on Spotify,

which gathers together all of each songwriter or producer’s songs

to provide a listening experience that showcases the diversity of

their body of work for fans and the industry at large.

“It’s really nice having all of these things in one place because it just

allows my fans to get to know me better,” says Parx. “I’m able to send

that off when it comes to aligning with brands and different partners

that just maybe need to know a little bit more.”

Spotify for Publishing

 

How can publishers identify streaming trends in order to hone in on

sync and collaboration opportunities for songwriters? There’s a totally

free tool for that: Spotify for Publishing “allows publishers to view

analytics across their catalogs, see which playlists are driving

engagement, view real-time trends, see data on cover version a

composition, and track daily streaming stats,” says Paris Kirk, who

leads Spotify Songwriter Relations. 

Noteable

With information and advice tailored to the songwriter, producer, and

publisher community, Noteable is Spotify’s multifaceted resource

for tunesmiths and those that work with them. Noteable provides

opportunities to connect with others in the industry.

It shares the stories of writers and producers like Tayla Parx, and

delves into the songwriting process via the Song Start video and

podcast series. Noteable also features Noteable Studios, where

creators can book free studio time in Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta,

Toronto and London.
