Hi Tami I recently stumbled across your video in a Google search then I watched 2 of your videos explaining split sheets & publishing. Truthfully this is something that has really confused me from time to time. When I think I understand the back end & the fine print of it all I end up scratching my head another day confused once more again.
Anyways to my question, I am a producer, artist & song writer. I would like to know if I need to sign up with a publishing company to receive royalties or can I simply just sign up with a society who collects royalties on ones behalf & that's it? I am assuming that publishing splits & royalties are 2 different things, yes, no?
My last question is, from the producer perspective is it necessary for me to sign up with a publishing company & royalty society if so why & what are the benefits for signing more so with the publishing copany.
My apologies if this is repetitive but I am really confused with the publishing talk.
Thank you in advance.
I can only answer one question, you would have to book me for a consult for the second question. all songwriters & producers should create their own publishing company to collect your royalties. You should research the different types of royalties you can collect publishing for: Performance, Mechanical, Synchronization licenses, digital licenses, print and digital licenses.

Hello Tami! I am an aspiring songwriter(from houston!) but I can't read music. If I am writing to produced beats then I don't necessarily need to know how to read music but I was just wondering if it is something you would suggest I learn/can I function as a songwriter(like you) without reading/writing music notes?Tami LaTrell responded on 05/24/2016
