Publishing Questions?

In the last few months, we’ve received many inquiries from songwriters about publishing, how it works, why it works, and who really does it.

So, we’ve set off for Los Angeles to meet with several music publishers, including Stephen Finfer, co-owner of Arthouse Entertainment, David Hirshland, President of the Association of Independent Music Publishing, Kamal Moo, Entertainment Attorney, Chris Tyng, producer involved with TV/Film arrangements, and many others.  We’re bringing a documentary back to help you learn what we learn about the current state of the music publishing industry, and answer some of those questions you’ve been wrestling with.

For an online resource, we’ve found none better than the Association of Independent Music Publishing website.  If you have any questions you’d like us to ask David Hirshland directly, comment on this post, or email us at
