ADMINISTRATION / SONG REGISTRATION
We are able to quickly and efficiently absorb and turn over song catalogs of all sizes. We are pro-active in ensuring song catalogs are registered properly and any counterclaim issues are resolved in a timely fashion. We maintain direct relationships with Digital Service Providers which enables us to better manage our data and ensure data accuracy.
Royalty collection starts with proper registration. Every penny is important to us and we are diligent in tracking royalty payments. Our licensing (via Kobalt Music) with major labels and Digital Services Providers (e.g. Spotify, YouTube, Pandora, Apple Music etc.) gives us more control over royalty analysis.
NEGOTIATION & LICENSING
We have years of experience negotiating all types of licenses and understand industry-standard fees. We always seek to obtain the highest fees for our client’s songs.
We pro-actively seek synchronization opportunities by building relationships and maintaining frequent communication with music supervisors, editors, TV studios and production companies, film companies, ad agencies, video game producers and other media outlets. Pro-active pitching!
Our experienced creative team is based in key territories providing us with global expertise and reach in a variety of genres including pop, urban, soul, EDM, electronica and rock.
We co-ordinate strategic songwriting opportunities for our writers, both in-house and with other music publishers. We also arrange writing camps where SONG:EXPO is our main songwriting camp.
SONG PITCHING FOR PLACEMENT
