Founded in 2010 by Tony Hinds, Weerai Music Company, LLC is a rights management company that offers services in various aspects of the music industry. For over a decade Tony Hinds has worked in music publishing and rights management. Working with over four hundred songwriters, artists and musician - he has negotiated and worked with all the major labels, publishers and media companies consistently.
In 2002 Tony was part of a small team that re-established the rights of a famous Elvis Presley single for the original publisher’s estate. This resulted in the estate recovering and earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in royalties and film deals.
By 2003 Tony had designed and implemented his first copyright and royalty management software for a publishing client. Through his service to this long-term publishing client he provided them with a solid and robust system for royalty accounting and rights management. In 2005, Tony settled a copyright infringement claim with a major music publisher for a well-known gospel song. The settlement resulted in the original writer earning royalties for many years to come. The writer ’s litigation attorney viewed Tony's actions as, "the best course of action for his client."
In 2007, Tony had set up over fourteen foreign sub-publishing deals in all continents of the world and in all major music markets resulting in over a forty percent (40%) increase in his publishing client’s gross income. Tony has signed well over one hundred and fifty songwriters to publishing and administration deals that have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars of royalty income to his client's songwriters. In addition to these accomplishments, Tony has been interviewed by the BBC and featured in a motion picture documentary about the music industry.
After deciding to provide direct services to songwriters, artists and music producers - Tony founded Weerai Music Company. Within a ground-breaking three years - Weerai Music's roster grew to include artists, musicians and producers that have won multiple awards and contributed to chart topping singles that have charted on the Billboard Charts.
For this reason it is Weerai Music Company's view that when it comes to learning about what we can do for our clients, "proof is in delivery".
