Music royalties are payments that are paid to recording artists, songwriters, composers, publishers, and other copyright holders for the right to use their intellectual property. There are copyright laws that give artists these exclusive rights to their musical and performance works.
Music Royalties are also generated for various types of licensing and usage. The types of music royalties include mechanical, public performance, synchronization, and print music. Most musicians depend on these royalties as payments from the music industry. Moreover, contracts define music royalty agreements between the creator and Verse One.

Most Musicians only make money from tickets sales when they tour. However, If your music is being distributed, performed worldwide, and you don’t have a publishing deal, your royalties are sitting in collection societies around the world waiting to be claimed by you. Collecting these royalties by yourself will require direct relationships with each society in each territory. Doing this takes time, paperwork, and a lot of upfront fees. Worst of all, if you don’t register in time to collect your royalties, the collection societies will retain the royalties and you will miss out on additional revenue. Verse One Publishing will help you collect your royalties and send them to you.
Streaming and sales are only one of the many avenues of income available to musicians. Sync Licensing, which is essentially like renting your music for use in visual media, is a great way to earn significant money while simultaneously helping build your profile as an artist.
