“Musicians need to know it is possible to get their music to fans without giving up ownership. Alex and his team have developed an innovative solution that empowers artists to have more control in their careers by providing customized funding solutions without sacrificing their copyrights. I believe that long-term success is as much about the business as it is about the music, so partnering with Sound Royalties in their mission is a natural."

"The Covid shut down was the beginning of a huge shift in musician’s income. My songwriter income was primarily coming from airplay and record sales. But when all of this happened, Sound Royalties really stepped up. Not only did they offer me multiple funding options, but they included an option that had no fees or additional cost. In a time like this, their services have been so valuable and so very appreciated."

As a business mogul, I’m going to continue to release and own the world’s biggest music and Sound Royalties makes that easier. These are my guys.”

"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."

“Sound Royalties’ response to the music community during Covid-19 has been very helpful. A no-cost advance during this pandemic is just like - wow. My PPP loan wasn’t much, and you don’t want to dig into retirement, so this free advance just gives a little bit of cushion. It takes the load off.”

“Musicians don’t always make money, and sometimes, we can lose money. I have to put money upfront for my records, going on the road, marketing my music. The ability to get an advance upfront and not have to wait for scheduled payments makes all of that stuff more viable. The ability to have working capital that you’re borrowing from yourself is crucial since we typically can’t get loans from banks.”

“I came across Sound Royalties after searching for a COVID-19 relief program. I was attracted to the company after reading through the website, so I went forward with the application. The way the program is set up really accommodates artists to be able to fund their projects. It’s such a blessing to have a company that understands artists, because it’s easy to get involved with certain things that aren’t as conducive for your career. Finding Sound Royalties was amazing for me. I felt very comfortable going through the process with my Royalty Specialist Mecca, with a few kind words exchanged with Evan as well. This is going to allow me to float like the mothership and refuel projects that have been on the backburner. Many thanks.”

“I found Sound Royalties through a mutual trusted friend of the company. Working with their team has been seamless, straightforward and direct. As a songwriter/ musician, your work is your lifeblood and you don’t want to be in a vulnerable situation – not giving up ownership is so huge. With SR, I felt so comfortable – it was the right timing and the whole team has been welcoming and receptive to my goals. I was presented with clear options after a quick and easy royalty analysis, and received my funds shortly after that. With Sound Royalties, I have a little mantra: my pandemic peace of mind.”

"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."

"It's been an amazing journey with Sound Royalties. The fact that they exist is a lifesaver for me and for a lot of music professionals small and large alike filling the void. I really appreciate Alex finding this amazing business model that supports artists, musicians and writers, especially without taking their rights away, which is amazing. When the pandemic hit, Alex DMed me on Instagram to let me know the opportunity to get support was there, and sure enough, SR was there to help keep things going. I'm truly appreciative. Thank you Sound Royalties."

"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."

"I’ve been in music for so long, and I got tired of going through the typical hassles with financing. But my experience with Sound Royalties has been delightful. They made the process simple and easy–no gimmicks, no strings, and no puppet master. My latest advance helped me to jumpstart my own record label and move from Los Angeles to Atlanta to expand my business. Now I’m excited that not only do I get to continue working with A-list artists, but I can start putting out projects for new artists on my own label."

"I was a bit skeptical at first because after being in the music industry for so long, I’ve seen a lot of different deals and heard a lot of promises. But until Sound Royalties, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a business where transactions are mutually beneficial for both the artist and the company. Working with them gave me the freedom to be creative and it really stood out to me that whatever advancement you get, you can buy it off early. Sound Royalties is so clearly for the artists, and that is a really, really cool thing."

"Sound Royalties is a true partner that’s really looking out for your best interests in the long run. It’s often hard to have enough money to produce your next record, to market and promote, but Sound Royalties put extra dollars in my pocket immediately. They’ll even return royalty overflow to me, where most companies keep all that money. If you want a company that’s going to work with you, that you can take at their word, that will make sure you can survive based on your royalty stream, that’s Sound Royalties. I’m very glad that a company like this exists."

“I had upcoming shows that were all cancelled because of COVID-19 and that was a hard blow. I was searching for music grants and found Sound Royalties. I was honestly feeling pretty down at that time but Yanet called after I inquired about the funding options online. Her phone call came at the perfect time and I made the decision to go through the process immediately. It was great. Yanet made sure I understood every step of the process; it was easy, smooth, and cool. Our conversations didn’t feel disconnected; it felt like she really cared.”

“Funding from Sound Royalties has given me everything I need to finish and launch projects that were being worked on pre-COVID. This has really been a blessing in disguise. I love what the company stands for and the fact that they don’t take copyrights, is phenomenal. It’s extremely important to know that there’s a company that can help you fund projects without taking your work. I don’t think Sound Royalties knows the depth of the help they’re giving the music industry. I will definitely push for more people to know the company and what it stands for.”
