ABOUT US

We are The Music Royalty Co., and we are here to give you the royal treatment.

We’re not actually royalty (but the queen did give us permission to use it) but we specialise in an outstanding backend service for record labels, distributors, and music publishers. We provide world-class royalty processing, informed by decades of experience, and as industry insiders, we also have the know-how to handle your accountancy and offer consultation on management. MRC is your seamless data and financial management solution, tailored for the music industry.

In this crazy industry, it can be easy to get lost in the numbers and the noise. That’s why we’re here: we’ll help you make sense of your data and turn it into profits, solutions, and well-informed decisions.

We promise we are not boring; we just want to allow creative people to focus on the creative side of the business.

OUR MISSION

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

HOW WE
GOT STARTED

Managing the labyrinth of multiple streams of incoming data is difficult. It’s also not easy to handle royalty processing and accounting in the music industry. However, if you are a record label, publisher, or distributor with a lot on your plate, it is critical to be managed.

That’s why we set up The Music Royalty Co. in 2015. Our founder and CEO Ray Bush saw the desire to simplify the royalty processing and admin and vowed to fill it. Ray has over 20 years of experience and has worked with Cooking Vinyl to Fat Cat Records — just to name a few — and he’s a man who knows his onions when it comes to this business.

We use our knowledge to 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.

OUR VALUES

Our bread and butter is the music industry. No matter what size company you’re running, we’ll help you achieve your goals with services you can trust.

WE’RE COLLABORATORS, WE’RE HUMANS, AND WE’RE RELIABLE.

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.

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.

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.
