Jammber’s production workflow platform will deliver a breadth of studio-level data to power Nielsen Music insights

New York, NY – July 11, 2017 – Nielsen Music, the industry’s leading source for music data and solutions-driven insights, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Jammber to receive data pertaining to song creation at the studio level. Jammber, a graduate of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center’s “Project Music,” will provide Nielsen Music with data about musical works that will further enrich the company’s industry tools and charts, creating new views for its clients. Nielsen Music will be unveiling additional information about these enhancements as the data is integrated into its systems.

Jammber is a platform that manages and tracks the entire music production process, streamlining workflow and bringing cohesiveness to what has traditionally been a fragmented process.

“The song creation data Jammber captures at the studio level will help power new charts, improve discovery on streaming platforms and will positively impact the lives of creatives all over the world by ensuring credit is given where credit is due,” said Marcus Cobb, Founder and CEO of Jammber. “Nielsen Music is best-in-class for providing insights globally through its deep understanding of industry data, which helps drive compensation for creators.
