Hey creators! As some of you may or may not know, I speak with a lot of songwriters, artists and producers who have questions about the business side of the industry.

The main questions I typically get are:

Why do I have to have a publishing company if I’m already signed up with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC?

Do I need to copyright my songs?

How do I fill out splits for my songs if there are several writers and producers?


In my latest online songwriter workshop, I’m covering the different types of music royalties that songwriters and producers make money from.

It’s very important that you understand what these royalties are especially since we are now in the digital landscape of making money!

Please watch, like and share with anyone you know who needs this info – especially independent artists!!!
