About SSA Music:

SSA Music was founded by longtime licensing and royalties guru Paula Savastano out of her previous consulting practice. The underlying vision of SSA was to provide an avenue for under-recognized independent artists to receive the same high quality representation and administration that “big name” acts get with one key exception: the relationship must remain weighted in favor of the artist.

SSA Music’s catalog includes Lanark Records, a roots and rockabilly label out of Lancaster Pa., guitar virtuoso Carlos Calvo, power pop sensation Cliff Hillis, YouTube personalities RKVC, and many more. Savastano and her partner Kurt Schmel have built the catalog to be end-user friendly, with the majority being One Stop. For more information visit:
