| WHAT THEY'RE SAYING |
Nischelle Reagan, founder and creator of Music Admin, knew there was a way music business administration could be met with relational connection to serve the needs of songwriters and organizations.
"My career in the music industry began in 2008. Working as the Publishing Manager and catalog administrator for a music label was a big job, but I loved the challenge and dove into understanding every detail. Our catalog was constantly expanding, publishing 400+ songs, even more songwriters, and albums.
Maintaining the details of our catalog required diligence and tenacity to make sure everything was in order. The highlight for me was working with songwriters and large organizations on a consistent basis helping walk through every aspect of each process and project at hand. Accounting for song use, issuing licenses to outside organizations, registering upcoming albums/songs with the Copyright Office and various performing rights organizations, securing ownership and paying royalties on a quarterly basis were also part of my daily routine. I have also managed all aspects of travel and touring with various artists, bands, and world-renowned speakers… it’s been an exciting journey!
I created Music Admin to relieve the difficulty artists, songwriters, and organizations face in the search for an advocate; someone who will represent and assist you through the journey of producing your creative vision. My love for authenticity and accuracy in music business administration grew through being closely acquainted with the struggle creatives face in the world of the music industry. As I have worked side by side with various organizations, songwriters, recording artists, and publishing companies, I have been able to help their vision and dream become reality.
If that’s you, I can’t wait to meet and partner with you through this journey!"
| WE'LL HANDLE THE DETAILS... SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO CREATING |
Let’s be honest… the music industry can be confusing and complicated. Sometimes it feels like you need a magnifying glass paired with a legal dictionary to interpret the jargon. While you’re at it, grab an excavating tool to uncover the buried treasure of information needed to navigate through the music business.
Have you ever tried to record an album with original songs and have no idea how to initiate the songwriter agreement process? Maybe you’ve said, "What’s a songwriter agreement anyway and why does it matter?". Maybe you are a songwriter and you want to make sure you are getting paid accurately for your work, but you just aren’t sure what percentage is yours or if you still own your song copyright. You want to know your rights as a songwriter. What about securing or issuing mechanical, print, sync, and digital licenses for every song? Now that can be a chore and a half. Paying royalties… definitely not for the faint of heart! I mean, the list could go on!
