SESAC is a music rights organization that serves both the creators of music and music users through music licensing services and the use of information technology and data science to provide timely, efficient royalty collection and distribution. SESAC’s performing rights subsidiary is the second oldest and most progressive PRO in the U.S., the only PRO to pay monthly radio royalties, and was the first PRO to pay songwriters and publishers for live performances in venues of any size. Its affiliate roster continues to grow, with recent signings such as Mariah Carey, Zac Brown, Green Day, Kesha, Charli XCX and Nikki Sixx joining stalwarts Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Lady Antebellum and the Kurt Cobain catalog. The acquisition of the Harry Fox Agency (HFA), the leading U.S. mechanical rights organization, positions SESAC as the ONLY rights organization in the United States, with the ability to offer singular licenses for the works for its affiliated writers and publishers that aggregate both performance and mechanical rights. This allows SESAC to drive greater efficiency in licensing for music users, as well as enhanced value for music creators and publishers.
