Podcast company Voxnest teams with indie music platform Jamendo

Voxnest announced a new partnership with independent music platform Jamendo. This deal will focus on licensing music, providing easier tools for podcasters with Voxnest’s Spreaker platform to easily license music from Jamendo’s catalog. The parties will also emphasize cross-marketing opportunities such as product placement to drive user acquisition.

“Using the right music in a podcast is a powerful way to invoke emotions and build a deeper connection with listeners, however the convoluted rules around licensing have shied many audio producers away from even trying,” Voxnest Head of Partnerships Mattia Verzella said. “With this deal, audio creators on Spreaker can now confidently choose music that will enhance their shows without fears they’ll have issues of compliance.”

“At Jamendo, we always focus on supporting and providing our independent artists and customers alike the tools they need to thrive and develop as professionals,” said Jocelyn Seilles, general manager of Jamendo. “Spreaker is the perfect fit for us as we continue this journey, connecting music creators with content creators, benefiting one another through a common creative effort. We are thrilled about this partnership and look forward to working together.”
