Bring your music further to life by displaying your lyrics

Adding lyrics to songs on digital music platforms is beneficial for fans and artists alike. Lyrics are precious — artists spend a lot of time and energy crafting the perfect words to accompany their music. Apps and services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, Tidal, and Google enhance the listening experience by including lyrics.

If a service supports synced lyrics, then listeners using that service will also expect to see your lyrics synced to the song.

Why should you submit lyrics to multiple lyric databases?

The answer is simple... to increase the chance that your lyrics can be viewed!

Viewing lyrics is not only beneficial for your fans, it is also beneficial for generating additional royalties! Royalties are not only generated each time a track is purchased or streamed, royalties are also generated each time lyrics are displayed on a service / website. Royalties are also generated when lyrics are used in books, sheet music, etc..

How world-renowned companies are using lyrics to bring your music to life
