LyricFind partners with Fender to provide lyrics to the music brand's latest app22 October 2019 - Press release
LyricFind is pleased to announce a partnership with Fender Music Instruments Corporation, to provide lyrics to its new app, Fender Songs. The app allows users to practice, play along, and perform to millions of their favorite songs on guitar, ukulele or piano.
Fender Songs will draw on LyricFind's extensive database of lyrics in more than a dozen languages, with lyrics that are fully vetted to get both aspiring and experienced players singing the right words along with their favorites. The integration of lyrics in Fender Songs weaves seamlessly into the app's on-demand song learning for beginners and experienced players alike. The app provides several ways to access lyrics, including lyric overviews in practice mode and a "karaoke-style" scrolling lyrics in play-along mode.
"Lyrics play a powerful role in deepening our relationship to music, especially when we move from listeners to students and aspiring artists," said LyricFind's VP of Sales, Roy Hennig. "We're thrilled to partner with such a storied instrument and music brand to encourage more fans to become music makers."
"We're excited to expand our digital products offering with Fender Songs. Songs will allow our players to access practically any song they want and provide quick and easy-to-learn chords they can practice directly on the app," said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager of Fender Digital. "Working with LyricFind, publishers and record labels, we've been able to ensure artists' songs and lyrics are fully licensed, taking our relationships with them to a new level."
LyricFind has worked for more than a decade to bring lyrics into new digital settings and formats, where musicians and fans want them most. By making sure lyrics are everywhere and fully licensed, LyricFind has created a new revenue stream for songwriters, artists, and publishers, strengthening listener engagement in the process.
