This catalog is a blend of commercial and production music that has been featured in popular television shows as well as a Taco Bell commercial. In the last 12 months, 50% of this catalog generated $2,485 in royalties.

Royalties from television makeup 87% of the last 12 months earnings. Music used in the show American Pickers has recently become the largest source of revenue — generating 87% of the royalties in 2017, and 29% historically. The popular History Channel show is in its 18th season, and previous seasons and episodes are often rerun. In fact, over 20 episodes are scheduled to air in the next week! This is good news for you because you will earn money every time an episode airs that uses a song in this catalog.

In addition to production music, this catalog includes rock music by the bands Kuroma and The Whigs. In the financial charts, you’ll see a large spike in earnings in Q2 2016. This is from Kuroma’s song “20+ Centuries” which was licensed for use in a Taco Bell commercial. The commercial generated a large amount of income in that quarter, and earnings from “20+ Centuries” make of 49% of the catalog’s historical income.
