Partners In Rhyme Visiting the USA

Partners In Rhyme is a US corporation but we are based in Barcelona, Spain. We are currently visiting family and friends and taking care of misc business in California. We are fortunate to be staying at a nice bungalow right on the beach at the end of Topanga Canyon Rd.
We have been catching up with some of our LA based composers while staying here.
Our first visitor was Bob Mann who I have known for almost 30 years now. He is the composer for our Auraspheres ambient music collection and a contributor to musicloops.com.

Tonight we met Gayle Ellett and his wife who had just flown in from New Zealand. We had a wonderful chat with them over a bottle of wine. Gayle has been part of Partners In Rhyme for a very long time now and has been a steady contributor. His latest collections are Exotic Acoustic and Dreamscapes.

Paul Black is a friend of mine since the early punk days back in Hollywood. We have been in a few bands together and have always made great music together.
Paul was a founding member and lead singer of LA Guns who are now on a comeback trail with a new record deal and worldwide tours.
It was great to catch up with Paul again after more than 10 years. We sang songs for each other and talked about old times and old friends. Paul is also a film composer and might be contributing to the Partners In Rhyme catalog in the future.

Partners In Rhyme, Inc.

Partners In Rhyme has been selling royalty free music online since 1996 and as of January 1st 2008 Partners In Rhyme has become incorporated to Partners In Rhyme, Inc.

January and February have been record breaking months in terms of sales for us. Nearly triple the revenue from the same time last year. Our composers are benefiting from this boom as well, our total composer payouts have been over $10,000 for each month with our highest paid composer earning over $3500 in a single month.

Our policy of not requiring our clients to report the use of music from our catalog to performing rights agencies and depending more on frequency of sales seems to be working. Our composers are actually making a living and their checks are bigger and more regular than any back-end payments might have been (had they been reported properly which is rarely the case).

If our clients want to submit cue sheets we of course supply them with all necessary information but we do not require it.

Looking forward to another great year for us at Partners In Rhyme, Inc. and for our roster of 38 (and growing) composers.

Royalty Free Christmas Music

As December comes to a close business usually slows down as people go on vacation or generally take a break from work. I know from our websites and from what our composers tell me that the last 1/2 of December is a bit of slow across the board.
This December however we have done very well with our royalty free Christmas music sales. I am sure other royalty free sites have a spike in their Christmas genre sales as well.
Below is a review of some of the sites and prices where you can purchase and download royalty free Christmas music, starting with ours.

Christmas Classics
This is a new collection for us and it sold really well this year. It is a large collection of Christmas music for producers who need more than just one holiday tune. The collection includes 24 tracks some with edits and loops. It comes with a variety of genres including hip hop, techno, traditional and classical.

Royalty Free Christmas Music
This is our standard collection of Christmas music at an affordable price of $29.95
