Live Performance Royalty Collection
In the coming months, TuneCore will launch a new service that assists songwriters in registering their live performances to enable them to collect performance royalties from these live performances outside the US, which will provide another revenue generating opportunity for TuneCore songwriters.
“We’re thrilled to bring TuneCore Artists these exciting enhancements to our Publishing Administration services, which will help them earn additional revenue and get paid more quickly,” said Scott Ackerman, TuneCore CEO. “At TuneCore, we strive to provide the best tools and services for our artists, helping them maximize career growth and income. Our new partnership with Sentric Music is so important because it positions TuneCore’s songwriters to have the same collection profile as major artists across the globe and increases their money-making opportunities.”
Sentric CEO Chris Meehan said: "Much like TuneCore, Sentric was founded on the idea that new technology could shake up the traditional music industry and make it work for everyone. This deal takes that shared ethos a step further. For 12 years, our admin platform has allowed hundreds of thousands of rights-holders at every level get access to a fast, flexible, completely transparent service. We're happy to extend that to many more creators and rights-owners through this TuneCore partnership."
