A six-time Grammy Award-winner and 24-time nominee, Malik Yusef is a trusted contributor for Kanye West, JAY Z, Beyonce and Drake, among many other top artists. He continues to impress with his avant-garde skills as a songwriter and producer across music, TV and film.
“Sound Royalties’ track record is impeccable and their personal service is unmatched. If people are thinking of making a play, this is the top-tier company to deal with. Sometimes banks don’t understand the music field and what we do, but Sound Royalties is in that business and understands it. I’m looking forward to making more moves with the company to stimulate the other areas of my business and create more opportunities for my fellow artists.”
The creative genius behind top hits including Pitbull’s Timber, Fifth Harmony’s Worth It and Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood’s Somethin’ Bad, Priscilla has established herself as a gifted songwriter and is now taking those talents to her own album.
“Sound Royalties really gave me the freedom to pursue things that I wanted to pursue, because I wanted to pursue them, not because I had to. It gave me space to go and make my record and feel OK with taking a break from writing for other people. This was the perfect move for me. Forging this relationship with Sound Royalties has enabled me to have breathing room, and to really think about my career from an ownership position rather than as an employee. If more people knew that something like this was possible, they would make better decisions and it would raise the bar for the industry as a whole.”
Multi-platinum selling artist Kevin Lyttle burst into the international spotlight with his worldwide hit “Turn Me On” in 2003. The success continues today with both Kevin’s own career, as well as the record label he launched for fellow Caribbean artists – Tarakon Records.
“If you believe in a project, Sound Royalties really gives you more peace of mind knowing you still have your ‘cushion’ and you can use some of your future money toward making things bigger. It also gives you more time to promote because you spend less time worrying about where the money is coming from… We made this move with Sound Royalties and great things started happening and are continuing to happen, so we’re pretty grateful.”
The Mad Stuntman
The Mad Stuntman shot to fame with his track “I Like to Move It” with Eric Morillo in 1997. He’s now recreating that same fun-loving vibe with his new album, Unleashed.
“I was going through a stressful time as I was finishing up the album. I owed some money over the years. And when I first heard about Sound Royalties, I didn’t believe that it existed. A friend introduced me to Alex Heiche (CEO & Founder) and he explained to me what was going on. Alex is like magic! I will tell everyone that if they’re looking for royalty financing to go to Sound Royalties.”
For 15 years, master songwriter Makeba Riddick has crafted chart-topping tracks for stars like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez. She’s now expanded to TV as a music producer and songwriter for FOX hits Empire and Star, and has launched production company 1220 Music Group.
“Sound Royalties can dig deep and find money that you didn’t know you have waiting – that is golden for an established, creative person! In 3-4 weeks, I was already collecting on monies owed to me that had just been sitting out there… If you are a creative person and there’s even a small possibility that you have money unclaimed sitting somewhere, this is the company for you.”
