Join host Jacqueline Jax as she talks with VP East Coast Sales Royalty Exchange, Preston Sullivan, about the future of music royalty’s and how he’s changing the game. Royalty Exchange is the world’s first market place for buying and selling royalties on a safe and efficient platform. Many thanks to @Preston Sullivan for coming on our show to talk about the company and the future of new artists royalties. Including the importance of registering your songs correctly to build up your royalty values from air play and sales performance over time.

A serial entrepreneur, Preston Sullivan has amassed over 35 years in the business of music and technology. Since graduating from Vanderbilt University in 1977 (Preston was a member of the 1974 Peach Bowl team), he started and ran successful ventures from LA to Nashville. Though a popular entertainer, singer and sax player on the west coast, Sullivan decided to move back to his beloved city of Nashville from Los Angeles and made the transition from artist to music executive in the years that followed. He built and launched companies such as college rock label Carlyle Records with offices in Nashville and Amsterdam, Preston Sullivan Music, ASCAP and Surespin Songs BMI with current copyrights associated with Universal Music Publishing and Cal IV Music. He was in-house producer and studio manager for Sixteenth Avenue Sound whose world renowned clients recorded over 80 platinum and gold records. In 1997 Sullivan jumped into the technology sector and co-founded the successful dotcom Tappedinto.com later called Streamlogics, a pioneer in webcasting and the streaming video business. Sullivan helped lead the company in global sales that resulted in a profitable sale in 2009 to Thomson Reuters.

Sales-Brochure-FrontNow VP of East Coast Sales with Royalty Exchange: Founded in 2011, Royalty Exchange started after identifying the need for a centralized marketplace where royalty owners could monetize their royalties and investors seeking to purchase alternative assets could invest in them. Our mission is simply to provide a platform where all types of royalty assets, such as music, television and film or patents, intellectual property, and mineral rights, can be bought or sold in an effort to bring value to both the investor and seller.

Mike Cathey
Started as an intern for Universal Music Group in 2002 in Minneapolis, MN. After graduating college I was hired as the mailroom coordinator in Miami, FL. I then worked my way up to Field Marketing Rep. After excelling in this position I was promoted to Artist Development Rep. Then in 2007 I was moved to New York City to further my career as an Artist Development Rep. In this position I worked closely with artists such as Amy Winehouse, The Killers, 50 Cent, Blink 182, Angels & Airwaves, All American Rejects, Hinder, 3 Doors Down, and the list goes on and on. In 2010 I was asked by Orange Avenue to head up the independent label Lovelamp Records. So I jumped at the opportunity and moved back to Florida. I am currently in the same position and working on Orange Avenues release of their 3rd studio album.
