Sheer publishing is one of Africa's largest independent Publishing houses and is currently looking to expand its client base within the African diaspora. Sheer Publishing's mission is to provide a comprehensive range of copyright services to our clients, both domestic, Continental and international.
Sheer Publishing is a full-service, mid-sized, independent publishing company that is quickly growing its market share. We have grown our top line earnings 17% in a very difficult year for the local music industry, and are proud of the fact that some of our clients have been with us since we started in 1996.
Sheer Publishing has well over sixteen years’ experience of administration of intellectual property rights nationally and globally. Sheer Publishing has close links with the collecting societies based all over the world. Sheer Publishing is also a direct member of SAMRO, MCSK and COSON, the copyright collection societies in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria respectively.

With our vast catalogue rich with South African, African and International Chart music ideal for synching purposes, Sheer Publishing offers the ultimate one stop solution for all deals. We have music placements on movies such as District 9 and the Oscar winning Tsotsi and the Academy Award nominated Searching for Sugarman. Sheer Publishing has placed music on television shows such as Private Practice, Jacob’s Cross and Big Brother Africa and we have also been instrumental in successful commercials such as Castle Light, Vodacom, MTN, Makro, Cadbury’s PS, Wimpy, Engen and Ackermans just to name a few.

The Sheer Publishing Vision
Our vision is one of a thriving African scene based on expanding existing local markets and an ever-increasing international presence. This will be achieved through a dedicated focus on building and maintaining a small share of the African intellectual property market, combined with a commitment to an ever increasing quality in service, accountability, creativity, performance and professionalism - we are firmly committed to a brighter future.
