Gracenote Rhythm is Driving Music Discovery

Gracenote Rhythm is a discovery platform that provides algorithms and data to form the backbone of the next wave of great music services. When plugged into a music catalog, Gracenote Rhythm crafts beautiful music stations and playlists personalized to the likes and tastes of music fans.

Adaptive Radio

Gracenote Rhythm’s adaptive radio engine uses data and algorithms to serve up Internet radio experiences tuned to a fan’s likes and dislikes. The more listeners interact with the Rhythm engine, the smarter and more personalized it becomes.

Music Picks

Gracenote Rhythm helps music fans discover new artists and rediscover old favorites based on listening history. For example, R.E.M. fanatics can discover similar artists from R.E.M.’s Genre and Era, such as the Pixies or The Smiths.
