This catalog contains multiple chart-topping artists from the Contemporary Christian Music community including Ellie Holcomb, TobyMac, Jon Bauer, Holly Starr, and more!


International sources drive the earnings of this catalog—which includes formats like radio, streaming, TV/Film, and others—accounting for 58% of the total for the past 12 months. The top-five earning tracks generate 60% of the catalog’s royalties, with the remaining 40% distributed across the remainder of the catalog.


This catalog contains tracks from prominent Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) artists, with the top-earning song coming from Nashville-born CCM / Folk artist Ellie Holcomb. Responsible for 27% of the last 12 months’ royalties, “Find You Here” was released on Holcomb’s second full-length album, Red Sea Road, and peaked at No. 21 on the Top Christian Singles chart. 

Christian hip-hop artist TobyMac’s “Backseat Driver” —from his Gold-certified album This is Not a Test— brought in 14% of catalog royalties over the last 4 quarters.

Rounding out the top-earners in the catalog are a pair of songs from Canadian CCM artist Jon Bauer, as well as a single from Holly Starr, which together contribute another 20% of royalties over the last year. The remaining 250+ songs in the catalog bring in the remaining 40% collectively.
