Listening Post Music Publishing

Listening Post Music Publishing Company was founded in 1996 to ensure that artist would receive a fair royalty for their songs – either through sales of recorded music or through radio airplay.

It is important to keep in mind that a significant portion of an artist’s income is generated by publishing. Publishing is not only paper copies of music (referred to as mechanical royalties in the music business) but importantly it includes royalties generated from sale of pre recorded music and airplay,

Being signed to a music publishing company is NOT the same as having your song copyrighted. Al songs should be copyrighted before submission to a music publishing company. Additionally, the songwriter should be affiliated with one of the major monitoring services such as BMI or ASCAP.
