Above & Beyond Distribution
Taking the headache out of publishing and licencing for labels and artists.
We provide expertise and hassle-free services to help you with all your sub-publishing, licencing and synchronisation needs.
Valleyarm offer our labels and artists publishing and licencing services to assist in this often complicated aspect of the music industry.
Publishing / Sub-Publishing
Publishing, or more specifically sub-publishing, refers to the collections of public performance, digital mechanicals and synchronisation rights fees that are payable to the music content and copyright holders.
For our labels and artists, Valleyarm delivers sub-publishing services (when requested) inclusive of collections of mechanicals and public performance royalties from digital downloads and streaming services around the world.
For our Distribution Only customers, when uploading your release we provide an option in the Digital Distribution Agreement for you to authorise Valleyarm to deliver sub-publishing services on your behalf. If you already have a release with us and would like us to act on your behalf, then please contact our sub-publishing team.
Our extensive and diverse catalogue is available for immediate licencing engagement. As a purchaser of recorded music, consumers do not own the rights to the music itself and are therefore subject to limits on how it may be used. Using recorded music for a wide range of things from advertising and film/TV soundtracks to ambient music in retail stores and elevators requires a license from the copyright owner. Music licensing of course, ensures that creators of music get paid for their work.
Should you require one track or one thousand, Valleyarm can help. We have an extensive selection of music, across many genres and regions, available for licensing to you.
For the music content owner, see Valleyarm’s Publishing services for sub-publishing and synchronisation opportunities enabling you to get your content in front of movie producers, advertisers, game creators etc.
As the leading digital distributor in the Asia-Pacific region, Valleyarm representatives are frequently invited to the world’s top music industry conferences and events.
Valleyarm produce our own unique conference sampler via Digisingle, of specially-selected tracks by promising artists and established acts on our catalogue to the top industry professionals worldwide. We create plastic, credit card-sized branded samplers, produce individual sampler landing pages to display the artist profiles and track previews, hand the sampler out at events and distribute the sampler on digital retail outlets worldwide so non-industry individuals can enjoy the samplers too!
