    Going into year 5, and my first quarter ASCAP statement surpassed my entire backend earnings from 2018. Very encouraging, and I owe much of the progress to information gleaned from this site. Thank you all for the wealth of info!

    I feel like I’m writing more and more tracks but getting basically the same back end money or slightly more. Congrats to UpFromTheSkies tho.

    My most recent Int distribution was around 35% of my domestic statement.

    Same here Pat.

    Same here as well. I’ve hit the BMI glass ceiling. Tripled my content “on air” and virtually no BMI growth in the last 3+ years. The problem is twofold IMO – BMI’s draconian “terms and practices” and the fact that streaming pays 4-8% of what Cable pays, and everything is moving over to streaming…. 🙁

    LAWriter, trying to make sense of your numbers…if you tripled your placements, and assuming your getting same placement stats as 3 years go, if my math is correct, then its BMI that has decreased payouts by 1/3?

    In 2014, BMI altered it “terms and practices” by including a show’s ratings in its royalty calculation. I saw a huge drop from that point forward until 2019. Things picked up as the result of non-TV placements including music used by the Tampa Bay Rays, Universal Theme Park, a Bud Light radio commercial, and “general use” of a 23-year old track in Hong Kong! The last distribution was the best in several years, up about 40% over the quarterly average for 2017- 2019.
