SoundExchange currently represents over 5,000 registered record labels and over 43,000 registered artists. These include both signed and unsigned recording artists; small, medium and large independent record companies; and major label groups and artist-owned labels.
There’s plenty to do at SoundExchange, and we’re always keeping busy. Our executive staff members appear on panels and educate the industry about SoundExchange and performance rights, and keep our whole organization running. Our distribution operations staff processes millions of performances a year, and our membership and royalty departments ensure all artists and SRCOs receive the most accurate payments possible. Our outreach department is constantly spreading the word to artists and SRCOs, so that they too, can register and be paid, and our licensing professionals strive to make getting a performance license an uncomplicated task for service providers.
