I’ve been reading about artists and songwriters selling their catalogs to investment firms – why is that happening?

Mar 2, 2023

Music catalogs are more valuable than ever. Because of streaming, music now has significant potential to make money well past the initial sale or release. This means an artist or songwriter who hasn’t put out new material in a decade or two, yet maintains a significant fan base, can still generate healthy revenues year after year.

The rising value of artists’ and songwriters’ catalogs serves as another important signal of optimism for the future value of music.
