UNIQUE WEBSITE HELPS UNSIGNED SONGWRITERS & COMPOSERS PROFIT FROM THEIR MUSIC WITHOUT GIVING AWAY THEIR COPYRIGHT

Successful Composer & Record Producer Richard Jay is today launching The Music Broker Network. This innovative web-based service helps unsigned songwriters, bands & composers generate income from their work without giving away their rights or future earnings. "For years" says Richard Jay, "I've helped music publishers, agents & managers generate income for their artists. They’d deduct up to 50% of the proceeds before paying the artist. So I thought, why not cut out the middle-man ?".

The Music Broker Network works with the best unsigned talent it can find and helps them improve their music until it's ready for promotion to its pool of worldwide contacts. Richard Jay says "As a writer & producer, I can advise musicians on how to tailor their music to the new Opportunities that are out there - not just record companies & music publishers but Films & TV shows as well".

Traditionally the first port of call for "wannabe" stars, the Record Industry has been transformed over recent years by mergers, layoffs and bankruptcies. Yet there has probably never been a better time for new musical talent to be discovered. Previously, if you wanted a career in music there was only a handful of ways to achieve it, and a handful of companies who had the power to help. Now, in the age of the internet, cross-promotion, and the "new Record Industry", there are a myriad of ways.

Richard Jay, whose book "Get Your Music in Film & TV" is being published by Schirmer Trade Books later this year, says placement in Films & TV shows is one market ideally suited to independent artists. "Every week, unsigned artists are placing their music in low-budget network TV shows that can't afford to work with major music companies. These artists are making thousands of dollars from one deal and generating fantastic exposure for their music". Developing markets like Eastern Europe and South-East Asia also represent huge potential for bands & songwriters. "Musical taste varies enormously across the globe" says Jay. "What may seem dated or uncommercial in your own country may be popular elsewhere".

The Music Broker Network is a division of The Broker Organisation Ltd., a company dedicated to helping creators profit from their work without needing to give away their copyright or future income. They'll shortly be launching The Photo Broker Network for freelance photographers.
