Your best bet would to contact this website that is able to get licensing to numerous artists and copyright owners. https://www.ascap.com/help/ascap-licensing

Ask Your Own Legal Question

They would be able to get you the permissions rather than you going artist to artist.

Thanks.

There are other agencies like this so depending on your artist, you may have to get permission from the other ones. If you have no further questions, a positive rating would be very much appreciated.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
