ABOUT US

As The Music Royalty Co., we’re here to give you the royal treatment.

We’re not royalty (though the queen has granted us permission to use the word), but we do deliver excellent backend services to record labels, distributors, and music publishers. And with decades of music industry experience, we offer world-class royalty processing as well as accountancy and management advice.

It’s easy to get lost in this crazy industry’s numbers and noise. That is why we exist: to help you make sense of your data and turn it into profits, solutions, and sound decisions.

OUR MISSION

ALLOW CREATIVE PEOPLE TO BE MORE CREATIVE
AND FOCUS LESS TIME ON PESKY FINANCIAL MATTERS.

HOW WE
GOT STARTED

Navigating the labyrinth of multiple streams with royalties and accounting in the music industry can be difficult, but it is critical.

Hence why we established The Music Royalty Co. in 2015. Ray Bush, our founder and CEO, saw a need and vowed to fill it by simplifying royalty processing and administration. Ray has over 20 years of experience and has worked with companies such as Cooking Vinyl and Fat Cat Records, to name a few.  In fact, he’s a man who knows his onions in this industry.

Among our clients today are music labels, publishing companies, and distributors, all within the music industry, including Believe, Scruff of the Neck, and Back Lot Music. Using our knowledge and expertise, we minimise the pesky jobs in your business so you can maximise your time on other projects.

WE’VE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS FOR A
LONG TIME, BUT WE’RE NOT OLD.

WE’RE ACTUALLY PRETTY
YOUNG AT HEART.

TESTIMONIALS

Cooking Vinyl Australia has been on board with MRC since its inception and we’ve found Ray and his team to be professional, knowledgeable, and expeditious. We operate under a broad scope of different deal types so our royalties accounting can be quite complex. MRC understand our business which is critical when it comes to accounting for our artists. We could not recommend them highly enough.

Leigh Gruppetta, Cooking Vinyl Australia

MRC offer a reliable and professional service. They understand the business and are a great company to work with.

Mike Chadwick, Red Essential

MRC are great: no job is too big, they’re easy to deal with and love efficiency. Ray is always at the end of the phone any time of day or night. The Other Hand is a smoother operation because of MRC.

Zena White, The Other Hand

Ray Bush and his team are a pleasure to work with and having MRC on our side has enabled Loose to proceed confidently with what we hopefully do best – finding and working with world-class acts.

Tom Bridgewater, Loose Music

Ray and all the team at The Music Royalty Company have been exceptional in taking the time to understand our business and work with us to streamline our royalty processing and accounting, as well as working on our day-to-day accounts to provide a solution that is second to none.

We have been working closely with MRC on all aspects of business affairs, accountancy, and financial management since 2015.Their attention to detail including preparation of in-depth management accounts has transformed the way we operate as a business, reducing our overheads, increasing profit and freeing up valuable time to concentrate on the creative aspects of running a successful independent record company.

Alex Knight, Fat Cat Records

I have been working with MRC for years now and they are wonderful to work with! Knowing that our royalty accounting is covered by the specialists at MRC is invaluable – they allow us the headspace to concentrate on confidently running and growing the label.
