    Just opened my statement and almost made what I made all last year! A huge chunk were international uses including a track used on German radio earning over $1000! Hope everyone had a good statement.

    Yes, it’s been at least 5 years. I just started to see more international royalties in the last year or so.

    Yep, international royalties make up about 50% of our total.

    Congrats! Glad BMI’s getting it done for SOMEone. :). After 25+ years it’s pretty mediocre, boarderlining on dismal here from my experience. Maybe it’s just the ebb and flow of things….

    Congrats Davey! 😀

    So many variables as to who will have good quarters (or years) vs. not so good. What type of music, what libraries, what shows placed on, what channels, what time of day the broadcasts were, vocal vs instrumental (BMI), featured or background, a lot of reruns in this quarter, and so on. A major network placement can give you a big bump one quarter but never rerun on that major network so the big stuff from it is short lived. But a placement on MTV’s Catfish or The (ugggh!) Kardashians on cable will pay for years and years as they rerun the crap out of those.
    All you can do is keep feeding the machine and be patient.
