Artist FAQs

We’re a collective of independent artists that release royalty-free music and have years of experience getting our tracks licensed for commercial use. Our aim is to connect licensees directly with artists, cutting out the middlemen.

Music registered with the IMLC must be royalty-free and released on a CC license. This is because our clients want a perpetual license for their projects and do not want to incur royalty payments. Therefore we offer perpetual use licenses, and tracks registered with collection agencies can not be accepted.

We would love to have more independent artists join our talented roster! If you make royalty-free music and have a fairly extensive back catalogue then please register with the IMLC as an independent artist and our team will get back to you.

Yes, and it always will be. We’re an upfront, honest, artist-run company that would never charge fellow artists hidden fees.

If chosen by our team, you’ll need a functional personal music website that will be linked on our IMLC artist page, opening the possibility of direct connections with commercial licensees. Artists also provide 10 track royalty-free license packs that can only be exclusively licensed as a pack through the IMLC. We also have our own central music Library housed on the IMLC website that licensees can subscribe to. IMLC artists are able to provide as many tracks as they want (non-exclusively) to our central library with payment issued on a pro-rata system.

We’re here for you at every stage of your music licensing journey. We can help you build websites, business models, provide legal information and more to aid your career in music as an independent artist. Check out our Artist Services page to see exactly what we offer.
