I am trying to get my music on RBN. What is the best authoring company that is still active (and free [no upfront])?

What do you mean by free? Do you mean no payment up-front? A lot of authoring groups don't make you pay up front, but they take some of the profits out of the back end. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone to do it for free entirely.

I meant no-upfront. I don't want to pay, and I don't care one iota about the sales.

That's the kind of commitment that should have the companies running to your doorstep.

Exactly. Maybe one of the company accounts will respond.

Well, machetemonkey's affiliated with TAG, so there's one. Ish. (Three-quarters? 0.8? I dunno what ratio to consider him there.)

I can't really render any verdicts myself, even though we do fall under that no-up-front category. I mean, unless it's a proxy project I actually have to hear the song before I can say if we'd do it or not.

I've contacted you before; you said my songs "aren't the type of songs [you] want to author".

I can say that TAG is taking a little time to get caught up with the clients we have now, so we probably won't be accepting new submissions right now.

I would consider contacting Chart Toppers. They do a lot of work with smaller authors, they do a pretty good job with their authoring, and while I can't say for sure if they're a "no-up-front" authoring group, I /think/ they are. Here's their website: http://charttoppersauthoring.sharepoint.com/Pages/default.aspx

Yeah, we do both upfront and no-upfront things, depending on the artist/label and what they want. I also usually don't turn music down unless there's a legal reason I've got to. I'm willing to hear what you've got, expertwin.

I've also been reminded with this that I need to update the site with our latest release. I should probably get on that right now.

Okay, I've PMed and emailed you with the goods.

Right, and the fact that he pushed me to start Chart Toppers and is an on-again off-again author for us had nothing to do with it.

:P

Nah, but seriously, I do enjoy his stuff, especially the more recent compositions like Dark Escape, which I maintain is the most solid song he's created thus far.

Got both, replying to you via email.
