San Juan Music Group, Ltd., is a music and DVD licensing company specializing in the licensing of primarily back catalog masters and new recordings of catalog artists. Usually these masters are either re-recordings of original hits by the original artists, though at a later time, or live versions of original artist hits.
In the last ten years, we have recorded over 15 live DVDs (for which we also own the corresponding audio rights), including those by The O’Jays, The Stylistics, Air Supply, The Chi-Lites, Tanya Tucker, Chaka Khan, The Four Tops and The Spinners. We have also entered into licensing arrangements directly with artists for masters that they already own, most notably Asia, Loverboy, Foghat, T’Pau, Rick Derringer, and many others.
We are currently scheduling both audio and video recordings for 2020 and are interested in any artists from the 1970s through the 1990s that had hit records. We are open to the possibility of doing either audio recordings only or DVD recordings combined with audio. In the last 9 months we have closed deals with artists such as Samantha Cole, Irene Cara, Looking Glass, Edison Lighthouse, Living Colour, and others to either exploit existing recording that they own or to record new masters that we co-own with them.
To date our masters have been featured in various movies (The Irishman, The Avengers) , hit TV shows (Titans, Riverdale, Hawaii Five-0, etc.) and in Hallmark Cards, as well as in normal retail distribution channels.
In addition, as our focus shifts from recording artists and owning the masters we record, our focus has also shifted from the physical product market to the digital download market. With over 13,000 masters in the catalog we are poised for the new music industry, one that focuses on the digital distribution (downloads, ringtones, true-tones, etc.) of music as opposed to the distribution of actual physical product.
