We did a post last month that looked at how your songs make you money.

In that we mentioned two new innovative online music publishers.

The Guardian – being a month behind us! – have just done this feature on one of the companies – Songtrust, which is a great option for you if you live in the US.

If you’re in the UK, you should check out Sentric Music – very good at what they do.

The Guardian say:

Songtrust doesn’t just collect royalties for its users – it also helps them get their songs placed in television shows. TV stations such as ESPN, the Travel Channel and National Geographic don’t have the budgets to license music on a song-by-song basis, and many independent artists can’t get their songs used by these channels as they only do blanket licences with individual publishers. As Downtown Music has blanket licences with more than 300 production companies, Songtrust lets users take advantage of those licences, too.
