Jaxsta is creating the world’s most comprehensive resource of official music credits.
What is Jaxsta?
Jaxsta is a music company using technology to develop the world’s most comprehensive resource of official music credits. Founded in 2015, and debuting on the Australian Securities Exchange in December 2018, Jaxsta ensures those who create music – be they an artist, producer, songwriter, collaborator, guest performer or engineer – receive credit where credit is due. Jaxsta’s head office is based in Sydney, with representatives in New York, London and Los Angeles.
The evolution of digital music means we’re losing the CD booklet and album ‘jacket’, and along with them the opportunity to discover and recognize the people behind the music. Jaxsta rectifies this. We are the official credit roll for the lost ‘Jacket Stars’ or ‘Jaxstas’ of the music industry.
How is Jaxsta different to other music sites?
We do not accept crowd-sourced information. Jaxsta delivers official data sourced exclusively and directly from the custodians of that data, such as major and independent record labels, publishers, royalty agencies and industry associations across the globe. The data is de-duplicated, cross-referenced, deep-linked and then made available online within a multi-functional, ever-evolving platform. Jaxsta also collates charts and awards information directly from their respective sources.
Jaxsta is made by music people, for music people
Jaxsta is a music company with technology, not a tech company with a music department. Our team consists of seasoned music industry veterans – from musicians and performers to behind-the-scenes professionals – all with a shared passion for music and a common goal: to put the people behind the music back on the record.
Jaxsta is on a mission to create the world’s most comprehensive database of official music credits, collected from trusted sources such as record labels, publishers, distributors and many more. We collaborate with these valued partners to ensure that the people who work on the music you love get credit where credit is due. It’s a journey – we’ll always be ingesting more and more credits to make sure that Jaxsta is the ultimate destination for trusted, official music information.
Official Music Credits
The evolution of digital music means we’ve lost the album ‘jacket’ and with it the opportunity to discover and recognize the people behind the music. Jaxsta’s mission is to be the go-to platform for the ‘who, what, when and where’ of music creation and the official credit roll for the lost ‘Jacket Stars’ or ‘Jaxstas’ of the music industry.
We only source data from official music channels – be it a record label, publisher, rights organization or industry association. Information is sourced digitally but authenticated manually to ensure that when you search Jaxsta you only get music information you can trust.
