PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --, the fresh and brainy engagement marketplace and social community for songwriters and music professionals, is partnering with Deluge Music, a boutique publishing company with offices in Nashville and Los Angeles.

The relationship, which took effect August 1, showers Deluge in benefits, saving it time and money on artist relations and by aggregating the data of all its copyrights onto one powerful, centralized platform.

MDIIO's asset-management services applies more than 90 points of metadata to every copyright and provides advanced algorithms to help identify music for sync and placement projects being promoted on MDIIO. The platform allows Deluge to efficiently manage its entire catalogue; store work tapes and finished songs; pitch to projects; track syncs, cuts and splits amongst its team; search and match — all with real-time alerts and monitoring.

The new two-year deal also assures Deluge, the ability to effortlessly manage its more than 1,000 songs from a dashing roster of songwriters in country, pop and rock, a direct line to identify and secure aspiring, English-language songwriters in 18 countries who are drawn to the comprehensive convenience of MDIIO's all-service, effortless marketplace.

For MDIIO's subscriber community, the new ties open the door to potential collaborations with Deluge's impressive stable of talent, which has placed songs with artists as diverse as Rod Stewart, Vince Gill and Theory of a Deadman.

"We're thrilled that Deluge Music has selected MDIIO as their platform of choice to manage its music content and relationships". Our suite of services delivers efficiency and enhanced workflows with real opportunities to maximize licensing revenue within our marketplace, said Curtis Serna, CEO of Songistry, which owns MDIIO.

MDIIO is a S-a-a-S (Software-as-a-Service) networking site, built with the mandate to bring fair trade to a fractured industry. It empowers songwriters to collaborate effectively, and to market and monetize their leading-edge original music with licenses for TV, film, commercials, streaming media and other projects.

The platform, which is based in Canada and the U.S. (Edmonton/Los Angeles/ Chicago/ New York), also facilitates financial transactions and improves workflows for music supervisors, music labels, publishers, advertising agencies and streaming providers.

"We only have 24 hours in our day," says Mark Friedman, President of Deluge. "MDIIO cleverly streamlines artist relations and maximizes the time we spend promoting our talent. "We've used other tools to assist us in our daily management of our content and relationships, but none offer the comprehensiveness of MDIIO, coupled with real licensing opportunities."
