Why Do I Need Songtrust?

Collect all the royalties you are owed.

Songtrust gives independent and unpublished songwriters the ability to collect worldwide publishing royalties with a professional global administration network.

For unpublished songwriters (and their managers / lawyers / record labels), the collection of publishing royalties from around-the-world is daunting, expensive, and time-consuming. With Songtrust's global network of collection agencies, we do all the hard work for you.

Even if you're already affiliated with ASCAP, BMI or SESAC, and/or have your own publishing company, you are still missing out on many other royalty types and territories. We can help you collect mechanical and international royalties directly. We also help you manage your current PRO's catalog to more accurately collect performance royalties. You can also use Songtrust to manage other songwriters, register live performances worldwide, and collect all of the royalties you are owed.

Songtrust is the publishing administrator for Downtown Music Publishing, ranked one of the top ten music publishers in the United States by Billboard. We help DMP collect worldwide royalties for their extensive catalog including John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Mötley Crüe, Hans Zimmer, Social Distortion, and Ellie Goulding.
