Jaxsta describes itself as the IMDB of the audio world. Their database now includes over 28 million recordings, and is ever expanding.

A great opportunity for members who have played on commercial recordings

CEO & Founder, Jacqui Louez Schoorl says:

“The evolution of digital music means we're losing the CD booklet and album 'jacket', and along with them the opportunity to discover and recognize the people behind the music. Jaxsta rectifies this. We are the official credit roll for the lost `Jacket Stars' or `Jaxstas' of the music industry.”

Geoff Ellerby, National Organiser Recording & Broadcasting describes how this service will benefit members:

"Members who played on commercial recordings can create their own profiles, add credits if missing, and use this massive resource to assess their own performances. It's a great opportunity to obtain free membership whilst work is still limited by Covid-19."
