Will Songtrust Collect for My Live Performances, or Will Those Royalties Be Sent to Me By My Performance Rights Organization (PRO)?

Yes - Songtrust collects royalties from live performances.

Songtrust will collect the publisher's share of the royalties you earn from submitting your setlists. Live performances are a source of Performance Royalties. These royalties are split the same as all other royalty sources.

US Societies like ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC require you to submit your setlists to them directly in your PRO account outside of Songtrust, but Songtrust will still collect in those instances regardless. All other societies outside of ASCAP / BMI can be submitted directly from your Songtrust account. 

You can learn how to submit your setlists in this demo!
