Trowbridge NEWS BRIEF
18 October 2004
I. Royalties / CCLI
II. Songs needed
III. Growth perspectives
I. Trowbridge Publishing and Omnivore writers are receiving Christian
Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) earnings on songs joining the
global Praise & Worship network. We are proud of the company's alliance
with CCLI and we are proud of our writers, and especially that their
songs are shared and enjoyed by tens of thousands through our efforts.
BMI's new President and CEO, Del Bryant, reports that BMI paid out
$573M in royalties during fiscal 2004. This is the largest payout ever
by a domestic PRO. BMI has added comprehensive accounting of U.S.
radio airplay online.
Additionally, BMI's October statements include royalties for
digital jukebox and digital network use by companies such as Ecast,
Touchtunes, and Dish Network.
Be sure to hook up with CDBaby.com's digital download programs if
you have your own releases. They are trying.
II. Calls for songs! The company is reviewing songs for Contemporary
Christian album projects; a female country/pop project; and ongoing
for Latin/country for both female and male singers.
Obtain a Control Number online before submitting (nonconforming
submissions are refused or destroyed.)
III. Reflecting McClure & Trowbridge Publishing's growing stature, it is
reported that the company is listed in recent "Songwriters Market"
publications. "Songwriters Market" has been one of the standard
industry reference books for over twenty five years, and is still
considered a songwriter's 'bible'.
McTrow Ltd comprises five divisions, each growing heartily.
Publishing includes Trowbridge Publishing (BMI) and Omnivore (ASCAP).
Record labels include JIP (Just Iss Planetary) Records and the
subsidiary label Artist Choice CD.
Other divisions are Artist Careers Inc, an artist agency; the Song
Shopping Center[tm] music services company; and Nashville Star
Search[tm]. Get your CDs pressed for as low as .037/unit and demos in
all styles of music with our full faith and happiness guarantee.
Nashville Star Search[tm] this year expands to include the
Nashville School of Music[tm] for an integrated 8-day intensive training
course culminating in showcases on the Nashville Star Search stage. The
"practicum" style hands-on learning involves participants' choice of
recording techniques in live Music Row sessions; writing songs with pro
writers and performing them on stage; commercial singing technique and
lessons; and piano/guitar lessons.
Included are sessions on management, booking, performing, sound
systems, and more. SEE http://www.nashvilleschoolofmusic.com and
www.nashvillestarsearch.com for details. Register online.
I'd like to thank every one of you - writers, customers, clients,
and friends in the industry - for being there and being a part of the
McClure & Trowbridge Publishing success. One of the most gratifying
jobs I have is writing checks to our writers for royalties and residual
earnings. A writer myself, I know how much it means to be recognized
and rewarded with that paycheck for your creative talents.
Hands down, the single most rewarding - and memorable - events for
me are when we get feedback like "You're an angel in disquise. I must
thank you and tell you how much I appreciate you. God Bless you" [Anita Duvall] and
"Just wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff..." [Lara].
Finally, speaking of staff, I extend my heartfelt thanks and
gratitude to Amanda, Rachel, Andrew, Riffat, David, Narika, Deb, and Jeannie
for their efforts and hard work during the last season.
