by Danita Jones of Spotify for artists.
There would be no music industry if there were no songwriters, and publishers are the critical piece of the puzzle that connects them to lucrative opportunities to get that music heard. In this episode of our video series The Game Plan, dive into the growing number of tools we provide to help you navigate and advance your career.
An evolution of static song credits, songwriter pages are a way for collaborators, industry partners, and fans to delve deeper into the creators behind some of their favorite songs. They are accessible from Song Credits on Spotify.
What Tayla Parx, who has written songs with Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe and many others, loves having a songwriter page is “the ability for my fans to connect with me in a way different, as a songwriter and not just as an artist. And it’s much easier to keep up to date with my latest stuff if you have everything in one place to access.
On the industry side, songwriter pages are also a powerful tool. “They’ve helped songwriters land recording and writing sessions,” says Ed Holland, publisher at BMG. “They help our sync department pitch to music supervisors. They’re also amazing marketing and promotional tools.
Written by Playlists
Each songwriter page also comes with a playlist written by on Spotify, which brings together all the songs from each songwriter or producer to provide a listening experience that showcases the diversity of their work for fans and the industry as a whole.
“It’s really nice to have all of these things in one place, because it just lets my fans get to know me better,” Parx says. “I’m able to send that when it comes to aligning with brands and different partners who maybe just need to know a little bit more.”
Spotify for editing
How can publishers identify streaming trends to target sync and collaboration opportunities for songwriters? There’s a completely 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 versions of a composition and track daily circulation statistics”. says Paris Kirk, who leads Spotify’s songwriter relations.
