Music startup AudioMojo has introduced AudioMojo Publishing, a new service for artists and songwriters. Established in 2019 by Guwahati-born Swarndeep Sinha, known better as Sonu Sinha, AudioMojo is a music and management company, providing music publishing, distribution, marketing and promotional services. Now the company has added a vertical to their operations expanding to royalty collections for Indian artistes. Previously, the entrepreneur and music producer founded Kyte Music, a venture dedicated to music distribution and management.
With AudioMojo Publishing, Sood will be partnering with multiple Performing Rights Organisations (PROs) to collect royalties from societies around the world. Reportedly, there is a lot of unclaimed money with PROs across the world however, collecting mechanical royalties individually is cumbersome and expensive for artistes.
AudioMojo makes sure global mechanical and performance royalties are efficiently collected. The publishing company has partnered with PROs and Collective Management Organisations (CMOs) including Broadcast Music, Inc; the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers; PRS for Music Limited; the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada; the Harry Fox Agency and other regional societies across the world to help musicians and songwriters claim their unclaimed royalties around the world. The company helps songwriters collect royalties when a song is recorded or played on the radio, live, on television, digital outlets, concerts, mechanical royalties and other music dissemination platforms.
“We are one of the leaders in new revenue opportunities and empower artists towards independent and self-publication through digital streaming platforms without losing copyright to labels or corporates, it has a global collection network to ensure the royalties end up where they belong — in the songwriter’s pocket,” said Sonu Sinha, founder of AudioMojo to Times of India. “They are the rightful owners of money earned from publishing or the use of their intellectual property. AudioMojo Publishing assists musicians and songwriters in reclaiming unclaimed royalties.”
