The First Songtrust Royalty Checks! Jane Park (Community Manager), Ryan Brodhead (Royalty Collection Hero) and Joe Conyers III (Co-Founder, General Manager) show off the first Songtrust checks.

 

The first royalty checks for Songtrust clients are in the mail! 100% of all royalties from ASCAP, BMI & SESAC have been passed on to our community of songwriters.

Having launched in early 2011, we've been excited to send out our first round of royalties to clients. We're also currently awaiting royalties from other collection agencies such as the Harry Fox Agency, CMRRA and Music Reports.

We're looking forward to sending out more checks soon!
