Believe acquires TuneCore music publishing partner Sentric, plots expansion

Believe has announced its acquisition of Sentric. The independent music publishing tech platform provides services for publishers, labels, and distribution companies, including Believe-owned Tunecore.

Setnric is valued at $51 million.

Sentric is active in 200+ territories, representing over 4 million songs and 400,000 songwriters directly or via its industry partners.  Sentric’s main competitor is Songtrsut.
