How are Songtrust clients using Setlists?
Songtrust clients Caspian frequently tour internationally. The band uses Songtrust's Setlist tool to keep track of live performances and collect royalties generated from their shows.
“International touring has become a large priority for Caspian over the past five years. They're on track to play over 60% of their Waking Season album cycle dates abroad and Songtrust has finally given them the ability to collect their foreign performance revenue without giving up rights to their music. It's possible that revenue from foreign performances would've eventually trickled into their ASCAP checks, but our relationship with the Songtrust team as well as their Setlist Submission tool have helped us turn that into a certainty.” - Mark Jourdian, Manager of Caspian
