Nope! Simply apply by clicking below and you can receive word if your record label, artist, and/or project will receive an advance and support from Symphonic.

Will you buy my copyrights in perpetuity?

No. When you sell your rights in perpetuity you may be giving up income coming in 10, 20, and even 30 years from now. Furthermore, that income won’t make a lot of difference in your purchase price.

Do I earn enough royalties to work with you?

We’re here to help everyone, but you need to have a minimum annual royalty income of at least $5,000 a year.

How quickly can I receive an advance?

The exact timing depends upon the payor of the royalties being transferred, but most of our transactions fund in days or weeks, not months.

What is the interest rate associated with this?

There are a wide variety of financial arrangements to fit your individual needs.  Because the structure of advances are done as assignments rather than loans, there isn’t a separate “interest” rate like a bank.  The advance you receive may have fees and discount rates associated with them however, the rate can be as low as 4% depending upon the amount of your royalties, the term of the transaction, and the risk associated with your transaction.

What if I have bad credit or IRS issues?

Transactions are not credit based and funding can usually be provided even if you have IRS and/or other issues.

About The Service

Symphonic Distribution has partnered with Sound Royalties to give artists, record labels, and more the opportunity to receive an advance for their next album, project, or artist signing without having to deal with credit issues while preserving all rights to the artist’s music.

Control your copyrights! No catch added!

You get to retain the rights to your music while getting the upfront cash you need. But it gets even better, because royalty financing is structured so that you still receive income — not 100% recoupment as is typical in the industry.
