This is a predominantly instrumental catalog (production music) of master recordings that have been licensed thousands of times for film, tv, and media under the artist name “Brique a Braq”. Licensed by brands including Nike, Google, Subaru, Honda, the Democratic National Convention, and countless churches, wedding, business, and nonprofits.

Production music is a great alternative to traditional music because there is no bell curve of having a song released, peak and fall. Production music, if solid earners like this, can keep producing income at the same level for years if the songs are timeless, and not stuck in a particular era.

Both owners are selling 75% of the master rights which includes normal streaming income from their distributor as well as income from Musicbed. Musicbed is a service to provide music to different projects, from commercials, television, movies, and even wedding videos. This is a new breed of music income and as you will see in data below, a great source of recurring revenue.

There are three different types of Musicbed licensing royalty sources:

  • Subscription: End-users pay Musicbed an annual rate for unlimited licenses. Musicbed pays out copyright holders based on the number of subscription uses.

  • Single Song: End-users pay Musicbed a one-time license for one use of the song. These licenses range anywhere from $50 for a wedding video to 2-3k for a larger brand who want to use it online, and ranges for everything in between.

  • Custom licenses: End-users pay Musicbed a one-time license for the use of a song. These licenses are higher priced and can’t be purchased directly from the website. End-users have to speak to a Musicbed employee to get a custom rate. These are typically higher budget uses (like the Subaru placement).
