Money should never get in the way of your music

Designed for musicians and record labels currently earning at least $5,000 in annual revenue, this program will allow you to apply to receive an advance without any of the hurdles associated with traditional financing.

– 100% private and confidential. –
– Funding of $5,000+ available. –

Do I have to pay a fee to apply?

Nope! Simply apply by clicking below and you can receive word if your project can get funded.

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. Click here to apply!

How quickly can I get my money?

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

What is the interest rate associated with this?

Sound Royalties offer a wide variety of financial arrangements to fit the individual needs of their customers.  Because they structure most of their transactions as assignments rather than loans, they do not charge separate “interest” like a bank.  The funds you receive from Sound Royalties may have fees and discount rates associated with them.  The rate can be as low as 4% depending upon the amount of your royalties, the term of the transaction, and the investor 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.

Do you offer non-100% recoupment options?

Yes, we believe in keeping money flowing through to our artists and songwriters. With most industry royalty financing, you won’t see another check until you’ve paid back that money in full. With this program, most transactions allow for overflow income to be paid to you.
