Here is a list of the top music publishing companies in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, including both major music publishing companies and independent music publishing companies. Also included are links to company websites. Because there are literally thousands of legitimate music publishers, it is difficult to list them all. However, we will be adding companies to this list. Some of these music publishers are looking for songwriters, but most companies are very selective and are only looking for top songwriters who can write hit quality songs.

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

Please keep in mind that many of the music publishers on this list do not accept unsolicited material. These music publishing 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.
