Welcome to the Musical Sleuth Website

My name is Jay Mistry and I founded Musical Sleuth Ltd in June 2004 after realising that music rights owners needed an interim audit service or a desk top audit service with a difference.

The company came into existence because not all publishers, artists or composers could afford to either employ a full time royalty tracker or engage a qualified auditor. In some cases, our more successful writer clients just needed an indication of whether a full blown audit was necessary.

For the past 24 years, I have been working in the copyright and royalty area of the music industry, initially with The Performing Right Society (now PRS for Music) and laterally with BMG Music Publishing (now owned by Universal Music Publishing).
