We call on Government to help us #FixStreaming and keep music alive.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit everyone hard - including songwriters, composers and performers.
Gigs and commissions have been cancelled, festivals and performances postponed, and recording studios closed.
Given the amount of money generated by the streaming of music, songwriters, composers and performers shouldn’t have to rely on Government support, and shouldn’t be struggling to survive.
The recorded music industry must play its part in supporting the individuals on whose talent and creativity it so heavily relies.
We can fix streaming.
To do that, we need to ensure that the flow of money is transparent and fair for the whole music ecosystem.
We call on Government to urgently undertake a review of streaming.
Let's #FixStreaming and keep music alive.
