The Mushroom Group has licensed master recordings on behalf of the Mushroom Labels since its inception. In recent years, Mushroom Sync has expanded its licensing of master recordings to include new master recordings partners.
Whilst the publishing copyright represents the composition, the master represents the sound recording. When negotiating a sync deal, the ability to speak on behalf of both copyrights in a single conversation makes the licensing process seamless, which is why Mushroom has always offered its services in negotiating and licensing master recordings on behalf of our writers and labels.
Working Master Recordings alongside Publishing also adds another tool to our belt when responding creatively to brief. With the ability to licence songs ‘one-stop’ (where both rights are licensed in a single transaction) plus an additional catalogue of master recordings to pitch, Mushroom is in the best position to find the perfect song for our clients.
