Neighbouring rights are boring.

$2,700,000,000 US worth of boring.

The world’s most experienced

neighbouring rights agency.

Meet the most experienced team in the biz.

We work with some amazing artists.

The team at Good Neighbour are massive music fans.

So we made it our mission to line the pockets of musicians, through advocating, informing & navigating the sea of misinformation in neighbouring rights.

We want to sustain artists’ careers by helping them grow their wealth so they can continue to create and perform as we truly believe music can change the world.

We’re the most experienced.

It’s simple – we have the most experienced team in neighbouring rights.

Good Neighbour is the brainchild of neighbouring rights expert Susan Cotchin, one of the few people who have been involved in the right since its inception in 1997.

With decades of experience on-ground in the UK, Susan has teamed up with Australasia’s most successful music and entertainment business, the Mushroom Group. Together, there is nobody on the planet more well equipped to hunt down every cent you’re owed in neighbouring rights.

Good Neighbour Rights Team

Our team.

Good Neighbour comprises a global team of over a dozen specialists in neighbouring rights and royalty collection.

Meet Susan.

Susan Cotchin is our Managing Director.

She’s also indisputably one of the world’s most experienced people in neighbouring rights. Susan is one of a handful of core people who have been involved in payments to performers since the inception of the right in 1997, and has specialised in it ever since. She has represented artists like Beyoncé, Radiohead and Rihanna within the space.

There is simply no more accomplished person in the field.

Meet Michael.

Alongside Susan sits none other than Michael Gudinski AM.

Few figures loom as large in the history of the Australasian music industry as Michael.

More than 40 years after co-founding Mushroom Records and Mushroom Music Publishing, Michael stands more relevant than ever in the international music landscape. Michael remains as the Director of the iconic Mushroom Group, now the home of Good Neighbour and one of the largest independent music and entertainment collectives on the planet.

Meet Zoe.

Zoe Coverdale has been at the helm of Mushroom Music Publishing’s international department for more than a decade, where she remains alongside her role with Good Neighbour.

Zoe was responsible for the signing of many acclaimed independent publishing catalogues for representation and has also helped bring in artists such as London Grammar, The Shins, Alt-J and Passion Pit into the Mushroom Group family.
