My name is David Salas. I own Artist Royalty and Music Services. Our clients include Classic Soul legends, Rap Icons and Artists who have achieved top 10 Billboard hits (see full list below). I began as a producer/artist and throughout the years, I have signed over 8 artists to major or large independent record labels. In addition, I have produced songs for Smokey Robinson, Jenni Rivera, Baby Bash, Frankie J, Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas and placed over 300 songs in TV and Film. In Television, I have an impressive list of placements that include theme songs, awards shows, sporting events and programs big and small but I also have placements with local cable shows, youtube webisodes and local jukeboxes.
One thing I have learned in my 20 plus year career is that there are tools out there that help to put your music to work and earn good money. The rise of the internet has paved the way for numerous and unconventional ways to monetize a song and I have prepared packages that give you the tools to do it. If you have music, then someone, somewhere out in the world could use it. It could be a TV show, an independent movie, a video game, a restaurant, a gym, a podcast, club or even a wedding. Every play pays, and although one may think a fraction of a penny is insignificant, those pennies do add up especially when they come from international streams. One of my clients makes over $6,000 a month on streams alone. One film placement in a major movie could bring in up to $40,000 and an independent movie placement can bring in up to $5,000. Much of these are royalties you get for life.
All my packages will give you the tools to start the process and submit your music to places where it may earn significant money. Understand, there is no magic wand that will create overnight success but there are practical ways to get your music heard and get paid for it. What I am providing are the tools that I have used that have brought me success throughout the years. We are available to answer your questions Monday through Thursday 11:00am-7:00pm at (626) 332-7401 or you can email us at email@example.com.
Hope we can have you on board!
