Jamendo Reports 50% Licensing Growth For 5000+ Indie Artists

Iimage from prnewswire2-a.akamaihd.netndie hub Jamendo is reporting 50% growth for its music licensing platform.  5000 of the 40,000 indie artists that have uploaded music to the platform have licensed a total of 200,000 tracks.

Jamendo is a worldwide community of independent music. 40,000 artists have uploaded more than 500,000 tracks to stream and download for free. Jamendo generates fair revenue for them by licensing their songs for commercial use (film, TV, advertising, in-store background music) through its marketplace Jamendo Licensing.

For those wanting to license music, the company offers a “one-click purchase” of cleared, perpetual rights on every work.  Jamendo also offers low cost background music stations for retailers. 

International clients include Mercedes-Benz, Benetton, Burger King, Greenpeace, ING Direct and Valentino.

“The real strength of Jamendo Licensing lies in its comprehensive offer: a great diversity of high-quality music provided by a dedicated worldwide community of composers in a time and cost-effective way, benefiting both artists and customers,” says General Manager Emmanuel Donati.
