Over 120 million jam sessions on Chordify in 2020

Press release Groningen, The Netherlands, January 12, 2021

At Chordify we hope that 2021 will bring some light into a dark world. As a music tech company, we love to contribute to this light by bringing more joy and helping people live their music. That’s what we did when the world caught fire a year ago, and that’s what we’ll keep on doing.

While we were wrapping up 2020 we came across some awesome numbers we would like to share with you. Talking about helping people  live their music all over the world is one thing, but seeing that this is really the case is another. At the end of 2020, more than 9.5 million new songs were chordified. That’s more than half the population of our home country of the Netherlands!  

You can only Chordify a song once, but you can jam it forever. So we calculated the amount of jam sessions that took place on our platform, and guess what! It turns out that we facilitated 120 million plays on Chordify. Think about it, that’s a sold out Michigan Stadium… Times 1115.


We love helping out musicians regardless of their skill level. Everyone who loves playing music is part of our family. Last year we welcomed 73.7 million unique visitors to Chordify. We say the more the merrier; therefore, we’ll keep working hard to expand our family in 2021. A big thanks to everyone who helped Chordify reach these sensational milestones. Happy jamming!
