This catalog includes multiple songs from Joe Bonamassa’s 13th studio album, Redemption, in addition to a track from Joanne Shaw Taylor and two production music cuts.


This catalog demonstrates the broad reach of the top artists in blues rock, with international sources accounting for 72% of the last 12 months’ earnings. International earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, TV/Film, and other international sources but are reported with limited detail.


The primary driver in this catalog is a group of songs from blues rock legend Joe Bonamassa. They hail from his 13th studio album Redemption, which peaked at No. 26 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and held even stronger chart positions around the world. The top-performing track is “Self Inflicted Wounds,” which brought in 76% of royalties over the last year. Title track “Redemption” and “Ghost of Macon Jones” taken together brought in another 14%. 

Also included in the group are the instrumental and full versions of a production track—“Ballad Of The TKings JP” and “Ballad Of The TKings Instr JP.” These songs have been used in shows such as The Voice, Pawn Stars, and Auction Kings, among others.  

“I’m In the Mood,” with 3% of earnings over the last 4 quarters, is from British blues rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor.

Key Drivers

International Earnings. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 72% of earnings over the last year. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by BMI, regardless of when they were earned. As this collection earns primarily from countries outside the United States, it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.

Featured Artist. Not surprisingly, the star power in this catalog is an attractive feature. Joe Bonamassa is an artist with a proven track record of hits, a loyal fan base, widespread appeal, and is considered by many to be one of the greatest blues rock guitarists of all time.
