No. Due to Symphonic’s exclusive partnership with TuneCore Music Publishing Administration, TuneCore will be representing Symphonic songwriters’ compositions as their publishing administrator to collection agencies worldwide. Remember, a publishing administrator is not a publisher (please see the question below for a detailed explanation).
Our exclusive partnership with TuneCore Music Publishing Administration allows Symphonic songwriters to leverage the ease of Symphonic’s systems combined with TuneCore’s extensive knowledge, resources, and years of experience to collect the maximum royalties our writers deserve. Therefore, if you’re our writer client and you notice on your PRO repertory database that your compositions are tagged as being administered by Tunecore Publishing (ASCAP) / Tunecore Digital Music (BMI) / Tunecore Songs (SESAC), this reflects that TuneCore is collecting the publisher’s share of your performance royalties on your behalf under the supportive umbrella of Symphonic Publishing Administration.
