Additional Culture Details

The passion of SoundExchange’s employees and central role in ensuring creators are fully and fairly paid is exhibited in the company’s day-to-day operations. From seeking out artists at events to let them know they are due royalty payments to global advocacy for full and fair pay for creators to continually upgrading the systems that simplify the business of music, the SoundExchange ethos of “creator first” is always evident.
