Up for auction is a catalog of production music that has successful placements in television shows like Girl Code, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, True Life, and more. Production music, while sometimes overlooked by the audience, can be a consistent royalty income producer. For example, four of the shows that use music from this catalog have contributed royalties each quarter since 2013.

Music in this catalog is being pitched through music publishers and licensing companies that work to find new placements in upcoming television programming. If these songs get placed in additional television shows, this creates new opportunities for you to collect public performance royalties!

In the last 12 months, this catalog generated $7,962. The next check comes out in January 2017 so when you win this auction you won't have to wait long to collect your first royalty check!
