Radio Facts: Following recent reports of music crowdfunding site PledgeMusic missing vital payments to artists, Sound Royalties is stepping in to help the creatives who have been left without the funding they had anticipated. The music-focused specialty finance firm has announced that it is committing $3 million to help fund the creative projects of the musicians affected.
“We care about the impact these issues have had on creatives,” said Sound Royalties Founder and CEO Alex Heiche. “Numerous hard-working bands and artists have not seen the money promised to them, and they may never see it. As advocates for musician rights, we could not sit idly by; we needed to help these creatives.”
With $3 million set aside for qualifying musicians, Sound Royalties is offering its signature royalty advances at an extremely low-interest rate of 4% for one year. In keeping with Sound Royalties’ core values, all royalty advances let creatives keep their copyrights and allow for overflow income.
Creatives who have recently reported problems with PledgeMusic include electro-industrial band ohGr, rock group Fastball, instrumental world music band Incendio, folk-rock duo HuDost, Canadian rapper illvibe, singer-songwriters Amanda Duncan, Mike Evin, Mick Thomas, Joanna Wallfisch and dozens of others.
Music professionals impacted by issues at PledgeMusic are encouraged to contact Sound Royalties today at 1-844-4ALL-MUSIC or [email protected] to see how its team of Royalty Specialists can help them continue their creative projects with capital designed to protect their copyrights.
