Sodatone helps the music industry find the best undiscovered artists through data analytics and predictive intelligence. We're a Toronto-based startup that was acquired by Warner Music Group in 2018, where we're building a large-scale analytics engine to understand how the world interacts with music.
There are two core components to our technology.
The Sodatone Platform : The industry's most comprehensive data analytics and visualization platform, used by the most influential people in music.
They depend on it to find emerging talent that deserves their attention, and monitor critical insights and data on their own roster of artists.
Sodatone AI : Using deep learning, predictive modelling, and our ever-growing database of billions of data points, we're developing algorithms that use social, streaming, and concert data to find the next Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran.
