ReverbNation today launched CONNECT Songs, a publishing administration service in partnership with Sentric Music. The new service will collect publishing royalties globally with no long-term publishing agreement required and no upfront fees. Sync services and neighboring rights management are also included.
CONNECT Songs will first focus on songwriters that are part of ReverbNation’s soon to launch artist development incubator CONNECT.
“CONNECT Songs enables ReverbNation to provide powerful, efficient and fully transparent royalty collection services for our bands,” said Simon Perry, ReverbNation’s chief creative officer (pictured right). “Combined with our growing traditional creative publishing capabilities, participating artists will have a powerful new tool to monetize their music, grow their audience and increase their visibility within the music industry.”
“No other company in the world has access to the volume of great, emerging artists than ReverbNation,” said Chris Meehan, the CEO of Sentric Music. “Their commitment to offering services of real value to artists of all levels is what has attracted us to work with the company over a number of years. The publishing administration and synchronisation services will enable artists to create and protect a valuable income stream.”
