Song Casting Service: In the Nashville music market, songwriters hire song pluggers to pitch their songs. The song pluggers work on a retainer of $300 – $1200 a month plus a back-end bonus arrangement and/or a percentage of the publishing rights. These fees are determined by the number of songs they will represent, and the fee is at the high end when they can pitch to the top music decision makers, such as A&R directors, managers, and producers.
Song Matchmakers Network does not charge any song plugging fees. If we get the song cut, we get paid royalties along with the writers. Our share is the publisher’s share. When we believe in a song, we will get it heard by top industry decision makers for artists, movies and TV. Then it’s up to the song to do the rest.
Music Publishing Services: Song Matchmakers Network will negotiate and administer the mechanical licenses, synchronization licenses, performing rights licenses, digital licenses, and print licenses, as well as other licenses authorizing various uses of the songs. In some cases, we may have an administrating service to collect the royalties.
In the European market, Song Matchmakers Network will be working directly with labels, artist and foreign sub-publisher to get the song cut in Europe. If a sub-publisher pitches a song, they act on behalf of Song Matchmakers Network and collect the royalties from the country in which it was recorded and released.
Song Search Notices: When you are in our network, we’ll keep you informed about what songs we’re searching for. We’ll send you information that will not be posted on the website. If you have a song that matches the lead, send it. If we have already signed the song, remind us of it, in case we didn’t think of it.
