Case Study | Open Ear + Shazam

For our 10th anniversary we have partnered with Shazam to give customers the power to take home playlists from their favourite restaurants and bars at the touch of a button.

The partnership will expand on the popularity of Shazam’s ability to identify individual songs, instead of allowing customers the ability to discover entire playlists. Using the new Shazam code technology, customers can gain a more engaging insight into each venues musical story and get the venue playlist sent directly to their inbox, acting as a powerful music discovery tool.

“For a long time now our bar, restaurant and retail clients have been asking how they can help their customers get their hands on the playlists they hear and love”, says Brian. “Working directly with Shazam allows this to happen for the first time. We can offer the public a much richer music discovery experience, and finally give businesses the chance to properly push the music that they play.”

We will be running our birthday campaign through November 2017 with Red Rooster restaurant, DF/Mexico in Shoreditch, Mothership Group’s flagship Book Club and Hoxton Square Bar venues, co-working pioneers The Office Group and the UK’s leading karaoke chain Lucky Voice amongst the venues involved.

Jon Davies, Director of Music Partnerships at Shazam: “We’re really excited to work with Open Ear Music. We already know our users are Shazaming the fantastic playlists they curate for their partners, and we’re pleased to give these users the chance to unlock additional content with Shazam Codes.”
