Naz-Sect Publishing is an award winning one stop independent music licensing and publishing company, based in Music City (Nashville, TN). We specialize in Hip-hop, Pop and R&B genres with top-notch production and performances to meet your music needs.
Our catalog consists of songs that are sample and/or royalty-free. We take pride in making your music decision process easier by controlling both sides (Masters and Publishing).
Naz-Sect Publishing was founded in 2010, by Stanley Straughter. He is a music business grad and musician with a passion for music publishing and licensing. The company began as a moderately successful solo operation with a variety of music placements with major tv/cable networks, movie trailers/promos, consumer product brands, and more. We’ve also handled administration for writers signed to major song deals.
Our most notable success to date includes earning a 2012 BMI Urban Music Award for achievement in the hit song “Good Feeling”, by Flo Rida (Certified U.S. Multiplatinum by the RIAA).
In 2019, the biz and the brand was refreshed with new talent, making Naz-Sect a solid team of music business grads, music lovers, and musicians committed to securing deals and placements that benefit our writers and producers.
As musicians, we understand the tremendous creativity, talent, and commitment it takes to produce a great song. We also understand the desire to earn a good living, doing what we do best, making music.
Our goal, first and foremost, is to help independent musicians to thrive and succeed in the music industry.
