What the Industry Is Saying

Songtrust is one of the most important assets for any songwriter, artist, or producer when it comes to collecting royalties. Their platform was built with the creator in mind which is key whether you’re making music in a bedroom or on the charts.

Kato On The Track | Client since 2018

The Songtrust team are a joy to work with. Welcoming, friendly, and supportive every step of the way. They're a team who are very passionate about the music and rights of songwriters and go above and beyond to educate, too.

Emma McGann | Client since 2018

To say Songtrust has been a vital service to me as an independent songwriter is a huge understatement. I cannot stress enough to any unpublished songwriter that they must work with an administrator to properly collect all their royalties, and I'm so glad I chose to work with Songtrust.

Griffith Frank | Client since 2016

Every aspiring professional musician needs a dedicated and attentive team when it comes to collecting global publishing royalties. I'm pleased with Songtrust's excellent customer service and was impressed at how quickly they started collecting royalties on my behalf.

LRKR | Client since 2016

Songtrust streamlined publishing income for the artists I manage. The income is real and the musicians can see it.

Seth Herman | Client since 2013

Songtrust supports indie artists like me and understands what we need to succeed and has the tools to make it happen.
