Meddling launched in 2015 as an A&R tool for labels, to help them spot emerging artists by crunching data from music consumption across the world. Now it’s trying to do the same thing for publishers with songwriters.
It has launched a new version of its service aimed at the publishing sector, focusing on using the same data to identify not just emerging songwriters, but specifically those who are currently unpublished – and thus possibly ripe for signing.
The new tool will also enable publishers to see trending songwriters who have already been signed, with a view to spotting potential co-writes and other collaborations. Concord, APG, Downtown, Riptide, Ultra, and Nettwerk are among the publishers already putting the new service through its paces.
