Reverb Nation has teamed up with royalties collection agency SoundExchange to deliver said royalties to RN’s 500,000+ artists.

Artists and labels who may be due compensation should sign up at SoundExchange.com.

“When SoundExchange approached us about getting money into the hands of the artists who have earned it, we didn’t hesitate,” says ReverbNation co-founder and VP of Artist Relations Lou Plaia. “ReverbNation exists to help artists earn money from their art and manage their fan relationships to that end.”

“Our goal, with ReverbNation’s help, is to inform every artist and rights holder for whom we have money and get it to them ASAP.”
