Founded in 2010 by Trina Smith, Me Gusta Music is dedicated to record and publishing administration; allowing record labels, writers, publishers, and artists to focus on their creative tasks at hand. Our expert team has worked in the music administration industry for more than 13 years—we know the ins and outs of the admin world, ensuring that all paperwork, registration and licensing is handled professionally and correctly.
Writing and recording songs is a full time job in itself; so it's no surprise that songwriters/publishers would prefer to have someone who really understands the complexities of publishing, and the paper-trail that comes with it. As your administrator, Me Gusta Music will handle all of your publishing needs from start to finish. This includes: copyright registration with the Library of Congress, registration with a performing rights society (BMI, ASCAP, SESAC), negotiating and issuing all mechanical and synchronization licenses to third party users, royalty collection, tracking and monitoring of earnings, detailed earning statements, catalog due diligence, monitoring and collection for digital streaming (Spotify, YouTube, etc.).
The recording industry is ever evolving, with more and more artists and independent labels releasing projects. It takes a well versed team to negotiate and monitor sound recordings. At Me Gusta Music, we take care of all record admin for labels big and small. These services include: negotiating with artists, publishers, songwriters, and producers; ensuring that all sound recordings have been properly registered with the Library of Congress; issuing licenses on behalf of record labels; negotiating and issuing all mechanical and synchronization licenses; compiling sales data for royalty payments; as well as creating and issuing royalty earning statements for publishers, artists and producers.
