Jay King Releases Anticipated New Album 'Helen's Son'
Sound Royalties, a game-changing company that enables musicians to fund their creative pursuits without sacrificing their copyrights, announced its work with R&B artist and music industry trailblazer Jay King. This announcement comes just days ahead of the United States release of King's new, highly-anticipated album "Helen's Son", featuring the single "Good Kind of Lovin'" which is already a #1 hit in the United Kingdom. King's new project will be heavily promoted in the United States by Virtuoso Music and Distribution, with whom King recently secured a new record deal.
King, who has been performing for more than 30 years, founded the popular group Club Nouveau. The group performed a Grammy-winning cover of "Lean on Me", which spent two weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1987. But, Club Nouveau is perhaps best known for the multi-million-dollar selling, #1 song on the Billboard R&B charts, "Rumors". King has a host of other hit songs as well, including "Situation #9", "Why You Treat Me So Bad", "Jealousy", "Heavy on My Mind", and "I Got 5 on It".
Once King learned about how Sound Royalties' artist-friendly model works, giving music professionals access to their royalty streams upfront and working with them to ensure the funds to continue creating music, he was all-in. Less than a week later, he had signed on to work with the innovative company.
"Sound Royalties is a true partner that's really looking out for your best interests in the long run," says King. "It's often hard to have enough money to produce your next record, to market and promote, but Sound Royalties put extra dollars in my pocket immediately. They'll even return royalty overflow to me, where most companies keep all that money. If you want a company that's going to work with you, that you can take at their word, that will make sure you can survive based on your royalty stream, that's Sound Royalties. I'm very glad a company like this exists."
Alex Heiche, Founder and CEO at Sound Royalties, added, "Jay King is an extremely talented individual, and we are thrilled to be working with him as he releases his incredible new album. It is the company's and my personal passion to ensure that artists like him can both retain the rights to their music and have financial security. We are very happy that Sound Royalties was able to provide King with the needed funding to continue his legendary work."
