The company

Sound Royalties is committed to developing funding options that support the music industry. We deeply appreciate music and music professionals.

We are a finance company specializing in the growing sector of music finance. We support music creators by providing them with financial options, including so they don’t have to sell their music copyrights to get funding. We provide customers with an initial cash advance, which is reimbursed by their music royalties. They get the money they want, AND they keep the rights to their music!


You will benefit from our excellent base salary with discretionary bonus, 401k with a match, outstanding medical, dental and vision plans, paid time off and our new modern office space in an environmentally friendly building.
