CONNECT Songs’ platform provides access to direct collection networks to ensure your songs are registered worldwide with performance rights organizations (PROs). This will result in your royalties being paid directly to your CONNECT Songs account.
For artists & songwriters
By signing up with CONNECT Songs, you will instantly have a publishing deal that will ensure the following:
* Your songs will be registered with PROs around the world
* Your royalties will be tracked, collected, and paid to your account
* Your live performance/broadcast claims will be administered and processed, with royalties paid to your account
* Your YouTube videos will be monetized (providing we can source your ISRCs)
* Your music will be available to our sync clients
The deal - basics
CONNECT Songs’ standard publishing deal is non-restrictive and keeps you in control of your copyrights. Royalties earned globally will be paid on a quarterly basis. This is a much faster payment cycle than going directly through a PRO.
CONNECT Songs will take 20% of the royalties it collects on your behalf. You can terminate the agreement at any time with only 45-days notice. After this short 45-day term, you will then be free to sign with another publisher.
CONNECT Songs is an invite-only music publishing service focused on identifying and supporting the best emerging artists in the world. All sign ups are reviewed and only invited artists will gain access to our full service.
If you've received an invite, follow the instructions to create an account and the online and email guides will then help to get you started collecting royalties and getting sync opportunities.
CONNECT Songs can also represent your master rights in the absence of a conventional record label.
Whether it's a request for a synchronisation license or collection of Neighboring Rights royalties, we can help you maximize your income around the world.
Our Master Rights service is an optional service that you don't have to use unless you require assistance. For more information, contact us to discuss how we can help.
CONNECT Songs views YouTube as a serious source of long-term revenue for songwriters. We understand the importance of collecting directly to ensure that you're in control of the revenue you earn from this music platform.
CONNECT Songs will ensure that you're collecting the maximum amount of income from YouTube on a global basis. Not only will your own videos generate royalties, the use of your music in other YouTube users' videos will make you money as well.
You can track YouTube activity via your CONNECT Songs account. Royalties earned will be paid to you on a quarterly basis.
CONNECT Songs’ sync department is currently placing its artists’ music in films, TV shows, commercials, and video games on a daily basis.
We pride ourselves on working closely with our sync supervisors and broadcast partners, listening to their needs and ensuring they are getting the right artist/music for their project.

Neighboring Rights royalties reward the performers on a recording as well as the owner of the recording (traditionally a record label) with royalty payments for the broadcasts of the master recording.
If you’re a musician based outside of the United States and your music is receiving radio airplay or being used on TV, then you are owed Neighboring Rights royalties. CONNECT Songs can register your master records and assist you in setting up your performer accounts with the PPL.
By allowing CONNECT Songs to represent your Neighboring Rights, you will also enable your music to be made available for broadcast opportunities with jukebox providers throughout the UK (non-US artists only).
