About Us

Our Company

Our mission is to confidentially help our clients identify, organize, and distribute the data required to thoroughly protect and administer their musical works. We rely on old relationships; new software; and a kind, smart, and full-time staff of 50+ people to execute on behalf of our clients and partners.

Proud Members of the Association of Independent Music Publishers, the California Copyright Conference, the Nashville Songwriters Association International, Songwriters of North America, and more. Recognized by the Recording Academy (GRAMMY).

Our Work

On each platform, we evaluate our clients’ current efforts; augment and update their works; resolve any conflicts or problems that may arise; provide analytical analysis and reports on demand; and collect, process, and payout royalties as often as they are remitted from the platforms. We remain flexible with our services and allow clients to pick and choose the services they need.
