Company History

Scott Cooley set up his own publishing company, Scott Richard Cooley Music Publishing, and holds exclusive rights to all his music.  Scott Richard Cooley Music Publishing is affiliated with the performing rights society American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).  As a single, owner-operated home business, Scott Richard Cooley Music Publishing has consistently maintained a unique presence in the music industry by representing only one songwriter - Scott Cooley.

Experts advise aspiring songwriters to establish their own publishing company to be taken seriously in the industry, so Scott decided to heed it.  They also preach that it is extremely important for aspiring music publishers to be sure they do not include their own name in the name of their company so that they are not perceived as "hip-pocket" publishers.  Scott thought this advice made little sense, particularly when considering the future of the industry, and chose to ignore it.

New Artists

Currently no solicited or unsolicited material is being accepted.  The present portfolio does not feature artists or songwriters other than Scott Cooley, and it is unlikely new/unsigned artists or other songwriters will be considered for publishing deals in the future.
