Don’t miss your chance to bid on this unique listing featuring 195 tracks across multiple genres including folk, pop, and TV/film music. Royalties are distributed across a number of works — the single highest-earning track accounts for 20% of historic income indicating that this catalog’s earnings are not tied to the success of a single track and provides built-in diversification.

The top earner for this collection is the new folk release “We Stay Together” from Andrew Galucki. Released in 2018, this track contributed to over $1,600 in earnings in the last 12 months. Most recently, the track appeared in a JP Morgan Chase advertising campaign. The track has also contributed to 100% of all Sirius XM radio earnings.

An interesting feature of the royalty sources are the impressive international roots. In fact, the majority of earnings derive from overseas – at 53% of all-time earnings. Top earning countries are the United Kingdom, Brazil, Sweden, and the Netherlands, among others.

Also featured are a handful of additional works including Secrets in Stereo’s “Again” contributing to 17% of recent earnings alongside Perrin Lamb’s “Everyone’s Got Something” and “All I Want,” which collectively drew 17% of earnings as well. “Everyone’s Got Something” currently boasts over 26 million streams on Spotify while "Secrets in Stereo" has over 250 million spins on Youtube.

Key Drivers

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 53% of historical earnings. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, 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.

Satellite Radio. The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) recently increased the rates Sirius XM must pay rights-holders by more than 40% over the next five years, from 11% of revenue to 15.5% of revenue, effective January 1, 2018. This catalog earned 19% of recent royalties from Sirius XM, directly correlated to this collection’s highest earner “We Stay Together.” As the winner of this auction, you can benefit from these rate increases as you collect royalties for the next 10 years.

TV/Film. This catalog benefits from placements in TV/Film, contributing to nearly a third of this catalog's historic earnings. The tracks “This Time is Yours” and “Two Steps Away” earn from placements in Disney’s 2016 remake of Adventures in Babysitting and the Disney television series Stuck in the Middle, respectively. In addition, this collection consists of cues featured in the 2017 film Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. Every time these films or TV series play on TV or streaming services (Netflix, Hulu or more) a royalty is generated for the works. As the winner of this auction, you'll collect performance royalties for any of the songs' used in TV/Film.
