Whats up? I'm kyngsolo and I miss spell things and I dont blog, but I have insight artists always come to me asking to learn. Many artists think bc a beat says free or free for profit that its free. I have been asked how do you get paid for songs. Do I need a Publisher? Ill ask do you have a manager and they say yes and I say but you have under 1000 fans. Why do you have a manager or publisher? Trust me I have probably seen and heard it all. So now after about 5 years of questions. I have decided to create this so called blog and maybe help some of you NEW AND OLD artists.
WHERE SHOULD I START?
First you need to register ASCAP/BMI/SESAC etc. Your choice on which one. I personally use BMI myself. So get to digging in that research and pick whats best for you. This might help you for starters https://www.bmi.com/licensing/contact/success. Now once you do that do you have a way to track your songs? That is one thing you will need weather its, amuse, identifyy, distrokid or any other platform. If you want to look into paying $20 a month or less here is my referral link to distrokid. I would advise using it: https://distrokid.com/vip/seven/1482197
Once you have those things down then we can move to step two. Hope to see you in the future posts.
