WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) January 08, 2018

Sound Royalties, LLC., a finance company focused on helping musicians fund their creativity, is thrilled to announce its work with top songwriter and 15-year music industry veteran Makeba Riddick.

Six-time Grammy Award-winner and 24-time nominee, Makeba Riddick has written for premier artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Selena Gomez, and more. Her extensive catalog includes big hits like "Rude Boy" by Rihanna, "Deja Vu" by Beyoncé, and "All I Have" by Jennifer Lopez.

In addition to working with Sound Royalties on funding for her upcoming projects, Riddick also benefitted from the company's unique service of searching, finding and collecting undistributed royalties for music professionals.

"Sound Royalties can dig deep and find money that you didn't know you have waiting – that is golden for an established, creative person! In 3-4 weeks, I was already collecting on monies owed to me that had just been sitting out there," said Riddick. "If you are a creative person, and there's even a small possibility that you have money unclaimed sitting somewhere, this is the company for you."

Sound Royalties' CEO and Founder Alex Heiche added: "We were very excited to work with Makeba and happy that we were able to assist her with securing funding for upcoming work, as well as unearthing outstanding royalties that she was owed. Our team of music lovers has followed her incredible career thus far, and we look forward to seeing what musical magic she has in store for the future."

Speaking further about her experience with the company, Riddick said: "Sound Royalties is a dependable asset for creative people like myself. When you're dealing with sensitive issues like your catalog, your monies and body of work, it's important to work with a company you can rely on."

With the encouragement and financial support of companies like Sound Royalties, Riddick continues to diversify and grow her career as a music composer for FOX's popular television series "Star" and "Empire." In addition, Riddick recently launched her own production company 1220 Music Group, where she actively discovers and helps to develop young and emerging talent.
