Featured Spotlight Records Artist
David Church

Click here to view David Church's press kit
David Church can be mesmerizing when performing, as you close your eyes and go back years listening to Hanks songs. His presentation is done with style, integrity of the music, and from the heart. David has some songs of his own that I believe are some of the very best country music has had in many a year. Catch his performances live and I'll guarantee you'll come away totally satisfied and waiting to tell your friends about it and ready for another show.
Minnesota Times, Larry Rose 5/2013 


David Church is a rare entertainment entity. David performs the songs and creates a visual presentation that is absolutely dazzling to witness! And, if that were all that David could do in this music business, one would think that's quite an accomplishment, but David stands on his own with his original music. And that my friends makes for a very powerful package! My Rising Star pick, David Church." Bruce Maier, Editer, Damn Good Tunes Magazine. 03/12/2011

James Paul Music Publishing


James Paul Music Publishing (BMI) was established in 1994 to provide a copyright service for songwriters and generate royalty revenue for both the songwriters and the publishing company.  We established James Paul Music, a publishing company through Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) Nashville, Tennessee.   James Paul Music is concerned with administering copyrights, licensing songs to record companies and others, and collecting royalties on behalf of the songwriter.   Other services include issuing Mechanical Licenses, Synchronization Licenses, Print Licenses and Song Plugging.   Added JPaul Music Publishing (ASCAP) in 2017.
  

​​
What types of royalties do you collect?
James Paul Music Publishing collects the publisher’s share of performance and mechanical royalties for compositions on behalf of songwriters.  We collect these from the US and abroad via Performing Rights Organizations and other collection agencies. We also collect the label portion of any unclaimed* non-interactive digital performance royalties for sound recordings from SoundExchange.  Performance royalty sources (included but not limited to):  Radio stations (terrestrial, satellite), TV stations (network, cable), Live venues (stadiums, bars, restaurants), Online streaming services (Spotify, Rhapsody), Mechanical royalty sources (included but not limited to):  Interactive streaming services (Spotify, Rhapsody), Sales of music outside the US (iTunes, Amazon)
  
What are performance royalties?
Performance royalties are paid by Performing Rights Organizations to songwriters and publishers for the public broadcast of music.  hese royalties come from blanket license fees paid to Performing Rights Organizations by businesses who broadcast music (e.g. radio / TV stations, live venues, restaurants).  There is no set rate for performance royalties – they vary quarter-by-quarter depending on variable factors, such as the total amount of license fees collected by the Performing Rights Organization.

What are mechanical royalties?
Mechanical royalties must be paid by a third-party (normally a record label) for the recording, manufacture and distribution of copyright-protected music.  The current statutory mechanical royalty rate for physical recordings (such as CDs) and permanent digital downloads is 9.1¢ for recordings of a song 5 minutes or less, and 1.75¢ per minute or fraction thereof for those over 5 minutes. These rates only apply to compulsory licenses as outlined in Section 115 of the 1976 U.S. Copyright Act.  You are also able to directly negotiate regarding the terms of mechanical licenses you issue – whether to your record label or other
artists/labels seeking to cover your songs.
