In short, the most promising way to make money in the music business.
By Definition: “In the music industry, a music publisher (or publishing company) is responsible for ensuring the songwriters and composers receive payment when their compositions are used commercially.”
The performance rights organizations (PRO) track and receive royalties for the commercial use of your music. It’s up to the publisher to request those funds.
Why do I need publishing?
Today’s internet-driven market has forced music sales profits almost to extinction. The music industry needed to shift its efforts to a different model to reward the content creators. Thus, the advent of new royalties available to musicians as long as the work is original and published correctly. The opportunities provided by publishing are endless, and therefore it should be the standard to publish all creative works.
Good publishers will take advantage of every royalty available to the arist. You can be paid for your live performances, streams, radio play, music videos, internet radio, commercial placement, and more… When music is placed, the writer can get paid a licensing fee up front, and quarterly royalties thereafter. This is what we strive for with your music when you publish with TallCat.
