SOUNDEXCHANGE is teaming up with REVERBNATION to assist in registering and paying thousands of artists and copyright holders who are due performance royalties for the playing of their recordings on satellite, Internet and cable TV music stations.
"Because of their enormous level of engagement with artists across the entire spectrum of genre, experience and exposure levels, SOUNDEXCHANGE sought out REVERBNATION as a logical partner with which to conduct our program to educate and register artists for whom we have collected performance royalties," SOUNDEXCHANGE VP/New Media and External Affairs BRYAN CALHOUN said. "Our goal, with REVERBNATION’s help, is to inform every artist and rights holder for whom we have money and get it to them ASAP."
"When SOUNDEXCHANGE approached us about getting money into the hands of the artists who have earned it, we didn't hesitate," REVERBNATION Co-Founder and VP/ArtistRelations LOU PLAIA said. "REVERBNATION exists to help artists earn money from their art and manage their fan relationships to that end."
Artists or labels who may be due compensation for recordings streamed on satellite, Internet or cable radio should check out their website at www.SoundExchange.com or send an e-mail to info@SoundExchange.com.
