The Music Modernization Act (MMA) was enacted into law in 2018.  It does a lot of good for the music industry, however, it does not address one massive problem still plaguing the music community:  most songwriters are underpaid for performance royalties.



We are composers, designers, producers, programmers, copyright administrators, and product specialists. We are passionate about the welfare of the music economy because we live it. We are building a platform to simplify and automate the creation-to-payment life cycle of music compositions, putting transparency and control in the hands of the creators and end users.
