The Orchard Takes On Recorded Music Royalty Processing

Orch-RoyaltiesOur policy at The Orchard has always been to provide our clients with best-in-breed service and opportunities to facilitate their business. What started off as a one-stop-shop for worldwide digital distribution has grown into physical distribution, performance rights services, sync licensing, audio fingerprinting and claiming, premium video services, compilations, marketing, and now, we add recorded music royalty processing.

Of course, we’re not just adding it lightly: we’ve acquired RoyaltyShare, who launched the industry’s first web-based platform supporting revenue processing and master royalties for indie record labels and music distributors, and we’ve made a strategic investment in Korrect, which has built a robust accounting software and data processing platform that supports the shifts in consumption models we’ve seen in the music biz. Together, RoyaltyShare, Korrect and The Orchard will combine our strengths to become the power rangers of royalty processing for independent record labels.

Welcome, Ryan!

RyanParentIntroducing Ryan Parent, Coordinator, Client Operations

Hi everybody! My name is Ryan and I’m thrilled to be working at The Orchard!

I spent the past few months working part-time in the Video Services department on the Content team and have recently transitioned to the Operations department. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA (Go PENS) where I went to school at Point Park University studying Cinema and Digital Arts. I had been working in the fashion industry for a few years doing clerical and graphic design work for a wholesale clothing company before moving to The Orchard in September.

My passions are music, film, anime, sci-fi, and especially video games! If you ever want to discuss boss tactics for Dark Souls or argue which Final Fantasy is the best (spoiler, it’s FF6) then feel free to drop me a line in the comments!

Praise the Lord! The Orchard Buys 2 Gospel Catalogs!

51rft7SHDpLThe Orchard recently completed the purchase of two venerable Gospel catalogs — Blackberry Records and MCG Records.

Blackberry, a Jackson, MS company, is centered around The Williams Brothers, a multi-generational act now in its 55th year. Founded by Leonard “Pop” Williams in 1960, the band currently consists of brothers Doug and Melvin Williams, along with honorary brother Henry Green. Regulars on the Billboard Gospel charts, their most recent LP, Songs of Worship, Praise & Deliverance spent 18 weeks on the Gospel Albums chart in 2014, peaking at #16. Other notable artists in the catalog are The Canton Spirituals, Tim Rogers & The Fellas, The Bolton Brothers and the Jackson Southernaires. Check out this 1997 video of The Williams Brothers performing “I’m Too Close” with Stevie Wonder, also among the Blackberry recordings.

What The #&@$ Do You Do, Corey?!?

CoreySheridanCorey Sheridan
Director, Client Relations
Joined The Orchard (via IODA) in March 2012, and started at IODA as an intern in the summer of 2008

You came to us from the IODA merger, and stand guard at our San Francisco office (*cough* jealous *cough*). Please tell us, what the #&@$ do you aside from bask in the glory of the Bay Area?
I oversee a team that comes without coincidence from IODA. Together, we oversee some of The Orchard’s largest distributor clients in the U.S., including Select-O-Hits, Malaco Records, Allegro Media Group, A-Train Entertainment and Burnside Distribution, to name just a few. While these distribution companies are similar to The Orchard in the sense that they represent many labels and artists (and most offer physical distribution too), these partners utilize The Orchard’s Workstation technologies to manage their catalogs as well as our distribution deals across retailers to support and grow their business. Some of these sub-distributors also take advantage of other lines of business from The Orchard, like neighboring rights collections, mechanical administration, and even video to a much lesser degree. My team manages these accounts from a higher level, working with the distributors directly and supporting their growth.
