THE ECHO NEST has partnered with JAMBASE, a web aggregator of concert and tour information; and SONGMEANINGS, an online community focused on deciphering the meaning of song lyrics, to offer broader data options for developers building the future of music applications.
The two will become part of THE ECHO NEST's growing ROSETTA STONE project, a platform that helps technologies from a variety of music services work together smoothly.
"JAMBASE is all about connecting music fans with the music they love. We've been aggregating live music information for over a decade, covering every type of band from clubs to stadiums," said JAMBASE CEO ANDY GADIEL. "By integrating with THE ECHO NEST, it's now even easier for any developer to add concert dates to their app or website and help spread live music."
SONGMEANINGS Co-Founder MICHAEL SCHIANO was excited of the opportunities partnering in the ROSETTA STONE project could offer to the developer community, "Once discussions began with THE ECHO NEST, BRIAN and I both knew this was a no-brainer. We focus on providing our users with an open forum to discuss anything and everything about song lyrics and this partnership helps us develop those [discussions] even further."
SONGMEANINGS Co-Founder BRIAN ADAMS also commented, "I truly believe this partnership will allow for a better and deeper experience for our entire user base. It really is a great next step in the evolution of SONGMEANINGS."
