The world of music publishing is still relatively new to India and a number of copyright owners and independent artistes have not been able to do much by way of getting their works published, particularly in markets outside of India.
To set the ball rolling for them, Turnkey sub publishes catalogues for markets outside India for a number of labels / publishers and also signs on singer / songwriters for publishing globally.
Some of the catalogues we represent are Rajshri Entertainment, Girona Entertainement, Sea Records, East Coast Audio Entertainments and FreeSpirit Entertainment, which makes the repertoire controlled by Turnkey a cross section of genres and languages.
We also work with labels like The Indian Record Manufacturing Co. Ltd. and Sagarika Music on specific works.
Singer / songwriters signed to Turnkey include pop, rock and blues musicians like Rudy Wallang, Tipriti Kharbangar, Sanjay Divecha, Vasuda Sharma, Shaan, Papon and Nishtha Sahdeva, ghazal artiste Roopkumar Rathod, rap star Baba Sehgal, electro / acoustic duo Sukanti Roy and Anushree Gupta, alternate pop musician Milind Chitnavis and sufi gospel artiste Sonam Kalra.
Turnkey also has Neighbouring Rights to the masters for all its publishing and sub publishing arrangements, making it a one stop shop for any licensing for sampling and synchronization licenses.
Some of the licenses negotiated and issued by Turnkey and its associates include a sample on the song ‘Overdone’ by UK based Bombay Bicycle Club and US based hip-hop artist Big Freedia plus synch deals for fitness videos and television reality shows in the US.
