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 arms411info@gmail.com.

Hope we can have you on board!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get paid?

Most revenue will be displayed on the respective site you are on and will go directly to your Paypal account. Some royalties may go straight to your BMI or ASCAP account depending on the type of placement.

When do I get paid?

Most sites pay are on a quarterly basis although some may pay per placement.

Will I be able to see my royalties?

Yes, you will have all the login and passwords to the sites where we place your music

What type of music should I submit?

You should submit only songs that you own the masters to. It’s fine to have co-writers but the responsibility of paying them rests on you. You may also submit your co-writers info so we may log it in correctly as well. We recommend submitting clean versions of songs as they are more likely to get placed.

Will I be able to submit on my own once my sites are up?

Yes, you can submit all you want. You can call us at 626-232-7401 Mon – Thurs for assistance or email arms411info@gmail.com for help.

How long before I see any money?

It really depends on the buyer or music supervisor. Often there is no way of knowing whether you have something placed until you see it on your site or PRO royalty statement.

Do you keep a percentage?

No.

Is this for streaming on Spotify, Youtube, Pandora etc?

No, but we are open to making publishing deals if it is a right fit for us.

Does this copyright my music?

No, you can copyright your music online at copyright.gov.

Should I copyright my music before I submit?

You don’t have to but copy-writing in some form is always a good thing to do.

Do these sites accept all music?

Yes and No… Some music may be curated but most get through and usually earn some type of royalty.

Am I guaranteed to get music placed?

No, these are the tools that we use but we recommend using these sites in conjunction with building solid relationships within the industry.

Will Youtube make me take down my music if I get it placed?

There is that possibility but I have yet to experience that.

How much does it cost?

See packages above.
