WHAT WE DO
Our Music Links Contact Us
We "take care of the business-side" of music publishing leaving the composer to devote his or her time to creative work.

The world is our territory and we offer :

(a) Inward - Placement opportunities, copyright protection and royalty collection services to international music publishing companies and composers seeking business in Southern Africa and Africa South of The Sahara.

(b) Outward - Placement opportunities, copyright protection and royalty collection services to African-based music publishing companies and composers seeking business in Africa and the Rest of the World.

We are passionate about protecting composer's rights and to us the integrity of the song is everything. We are extremely proud of the fact that we have been trusted to administer and protect the hit song catalogues of such musical greats as Elvis Presley, George Harrison (of The Beatles), Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys), The Doors, Burt Bacharach, Tom Snow, Mike Chapman, Neil Young, Tom Petty, John Fogerty (of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Chris De Burgh, Frank Sinatra, Ronan Keating, Michael McDonald (of The Doobie Brothers), Stephen Stills (of CSN), George Benson, Carlos Santana, The Zombies, Hot Chocolate, Missy Elliott, Keb Mo, Rick James, Gene McDaniels, Mark Knopfler, Journey and Foreigner, together with those of country legends Brad Paisley, Clint Black and Garth Brooks, and jazz stars Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, Airto Moreira, Peter White, Rick Braun, Dan Siegel and Jeff Lorber, right up to the very contemporary Black Keys and DJ club legend, David Guetta - as well as our very own local superstars, Daniel Baron, Bright Blue and Paul Hanmer.

Our role is to ensure that the repertoire with which we have been entrusted is properly registered with collection societies and that maximum value is negotiated and secured for our clients whenever exploitation opportunities arise, be that with record companies, digital service providers, mobile phone companies, broadcasters, film companies, production houses or advertising agencies. We then issue licenses and supervise, police and audit the royalty collection processes right through to the point where royalties are paid to our publisher and/or composer clients.*

* We also pay over all annual NRR (Non Royalty Revenue)/Black Box payments received from SAMRO.
