Brazil is already an important market for LyricFind: in fact, it’s the fifth-largest territory in terms of business for the lyrics-focused company. Now it’s hoping to build on that with its latest deal: a licensing agreement with Abramus Digital, which is part of collecting society Abramus. It represents more than 80,000 songwriters and publishers, and LyricFind SVP of international publishing Robert Singerman said the deal will considerably increase the database of lyrics that LyricFind has to work with.
“We’re expanding access to Brazilian lyrics, going way beyond the hits into amazing lyrics from writers and artists of all styles and at all stages of their careers,” he said. The company has plans to translate a number of these lyrics for use outside Brazil, too.
