Why Does Metadata Matter?

Organized metadata can maximize your royalties, help fans find your music, and help music supervisors license your music. Whether its a search on Google, Spotify, Apple Music or any search engine, accurate metadata can help your music get discovered and get paid. Not having your metadata in order and plugged into the right agencies can lead to missed opportunities.

How do I license my music?

Great question!
There are some steps to take to get your music ready to license. You do want to have your music ready, because speed counts when it comes to licensing music.

Confirm writer names and splits, publisher names and splits, performing rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI, PRS, etc.) for writers and publishers.
Splits meaning if you have 4 writers on a song and you split the song evenly, each writer has 25% (which adds up to 100%) for the writer share. If each writer has their own publisher, it's very likely the publishing splits would also be 25% each (which adds up to 100%).
Who owns the master/copyright? Does a record label or do you own your master/copyrights?
Are there any samples? Have you sorted out the writer, publisher, and/or master splits with the publisher(s) and master owner of the song you sampled? It is your job to know and if you don't, the music supervisor will move on because they need to be certain they can clear the song without any conflicts. Remember speed counts so have your ducks in order!
Is there a TV/FILM/GAME that you are interested in submitting your music to? Do some research and find the music supervisor or the folks that are in the music clearance department. Send a high quality recording that can be downloaded or streamed via a reliable file sharing company.

Always be polite and recognize that the folks you are pitching to are receiving a lot of inquiries so be aware of the limited time they will have to check out the tune(s).


IS YOUR MUSIC READY TO BE LICENSED TO TV/FILM?

We help artists monetize their music, collect worldwide royalties (current and retroactive) and pitch their music for licensing opportunities (we’ve placed on Indie Films, Showtime’s Shameless, Comedy Central, MTV among others). YOU retain ALL of your publishing. WE make sure you receive every penny from every platform, worldwide. This is a service but we keep our fees artist friendly. The bulk of our work is focused on the mountains of paperwork and digital documents required to register songs in such a way that artists can receive ALL POSSIBLE COMPENSATION for spins, plays, and usage online and in the media. This way, artists can focus on their music, and we do all the boring stuff required to help you succeed in a contemporary, digital landscape that evolves rapidly all the time. You made the music, now make sure you own it and get compensated for it! Start building your music business foundation!
