Did you know you may have royalties from your music out there that noone can find you to pay you?  SoundExchange is a non-profit entity that collects royalties for satellite radio, internet radio and cable television.  They are the official entity that collects royalties for both artists and record labels in the United States.  The SoundExchange website has a searchabel database of eveyone that is owed royalties.  If you find your name, just register an account and let the mailbox money come in!


New to the website is the Client Lists Section!  It was my project this holiday break, and I finally got it all up and running.  It's still a work in progress, but my plan is to have a searchable database of every project and client I've had the pleasure of working on and with.  If I've worked on a project that you've been involved with also, please let me know if there any errors.  I would like my database to be as accurate as possible.
