In order to monetize from SoundCloud, you will need to upload your content through a SoundCloud approved third party digital aggregator / distributor, or you as the artist or the artist covering your songs will need to have a direct deal with SoundCloud. Please note by releasing through a third party distributor for monetizing purposes you will be subject to their specific release requirements (proper song clearances, publishing details, etc.). Songtrust would then only be able to collect royalties that are generated from your content through their royalties processing administrator Music Reports Inc.
Songtrust gives music makers the easiest way to get paid publishing royalties from the US and abroad.
We help bands and songwriters register their songs with agencies around the world to collect royalties generated from their songs being played on-air, online, on TV and many other places.
