Music Publishing is different from Music Distribution!

What is a Music Publishing Administrator?

Music Publishing refers to the collection of money for the music that you write. When music is used commercially, both the songwriter and the copyright owner of the composition are owed money. 

This means if you have been distributing your releases with Identity Music, there is more money you could be collecting!

Identity Music offers our signed clients Music Publishing Administration Services.

With Identity Music, the songwriter retains 100% ownership of all of the compositions. 

As a Music Publishing Administrator, we register your compositions with all of the relevant entities such as PROs, CMOs and MROs. We collate all of your earned royalties and pay them to you directly.
