Here is a list of music publishers in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, including both major and independent companies. Also included are links to company websites. Because there are literally thousands of legitimate publishers, it is difficult to list them all. However, we will be adding companies to this list.

For a very comprehensive list of publishers, which includes the names of each company’s executives and staff (plus direct phone & fax numbers and e-mail addresses), we highly recommend the Music Publishers Registry, which is compiled by Music Business Registry.

Please keep in mind that many of the publishers on this list do not accept unsolicited material. These companies suggest that writers initially contact reputable industry sources (such as performance rights representatives, attorneys, managers, booking agents, etc.), who can then approach them with writer submittals.
