That’s why we offer the best creative support, provide the best access to platforms and work hard to maximize the value of each and every copyright, ensuring all our artists receive all payments promptly and accurately.
We are not a technology company – though we use the best technology. We are not just a music publisher or a record label – although we offer both services.
And as a new music company we know that songwriters and artists don’t work for us – we work for them. It’s a knowledge as clear as our commitment; to make BMG the best international music company – both for songwriters, artists and those who want to use their music.
