Petition to Tom Ellis, Warner Bros. Television, Vertigo , Warner Brothers, Time Warner
Lucifer actor Tom Ellis to release a soundtrack of the songs he plays
The show Lucifer is loved among many people, myself included. The actors are amazing in their roles, the themes of the episode are thought provoking and, something noteworthy, the soundtrack is INCREDIBLE! The soundtrack includes many different artists such as Cage The Elephant, David Bowie, The Black Keys and Led Zeppelin (Just to name a few). However, Tom Ellis himself, the actor who plays Lucifer Morningstar, will sometimes play and sing covers of songs on the piano within the episodes. The covers range from Bob Dylan's All Along the Watchtower (Which was famously covered by Jimi Hendrix) to Nina Simone's Sinnerman. The songs are beautifully performed yet, unfortunately, no professionally recorded version of these songs covered by Tom Ellis exist. The aim of this petition is to convince Tom Ellis and Warner Bros. to record these songs professionally for the fans of the show and also for the people who enjoy brilliant covers of amazing songs.

Ask Government and Parliament to Support Free Movement for Musicians Post-Brexit
Most professional musicians and performers rely on touring and performing in the European Union to make a living. Being able to travel is essential to keep a music career going. Being able to travel easily is equally important as gigs are often organised at short notice. We need free movement to continue for musicians working in the EU, with minimum administrative burdens. Before the European Union, travelling in Europe was tough – it was expensive, heavy on the admin, and time-consuming. Musicians who’ve had to go through the visa process for the United States know how costly and confusing it can be. We don’t want musicians’ rights in the EU to go backwards, and we don’t want music in the EU – or the UK – to be restricted by unnecessary expense or bureaucratic burdens. “Music, and the performing arts more generally, rely on exchange of ideas and interaction between performers of different nationalities. Music flourishes in an open world with no borders — not a closed-off island that looks inward on itself” – MU General Secretary, and founder member of Darts, Horace Trubridge. Over 100 MPs and Peers have committed to protecting musicians’ right to move freely and easily in the European Union (EU) after Brexit. Let’s show the Government, MPs and Peers that they must support musicians working in the EU. The Musicians’ Union is made up of over 30,000 musicians across the UK. Our members are already writing to their MPs asking them to support our pledge, and sharing their experiences of working in the EU across social media using the hashtag #WorkingInTheEU. Please add your voice to our call. Sign and share the petition #WorkingInTheEU. Stay up to date!

Make the Internet fair for performers
[Version française] [Deutsche Version] [Versione italiana] [Versión española] [Versão em português] [Polska wersja] [Dansk udgave] [Česká verze] [Ελληνική έκδοση] [Nederlandse versie] [Slovenska verzija] In the first half of 2015, over 1 trillion songs, movies and TV series have been streamed online - more than double the amount in 2014. However, whilst Spotify, Netflix and iTunes and other legal, on-demand streaming and download services continue to grow in popularity and value, performers still do not receive a fair share of the income generated by their recorded performances. In order to remedy this unfair situation, four international organisations representing over half a million performers in Europe (AEPO-ARTIS, EuroFIA, FIM and IAO) have joined forces and launched a campaign for the fair treatment of performers online (the Fair Internet campaign). Do you believe that performers should be fairly rewarded? If so, you can help us make that happen. Simply sign this petition and share it with your friends and colleagues on social media. Raising awareness is key to setting up a fair legislative framework for performers in Europe. Thank you for your support!

Petition to Arctic Monkeys
Arctic Monkeys Glasgow Tour 2018
This year (2018), Arctic Monkeys are going on tour to celebrate the release of their new album; “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.” They have 36 international tour dates, and 17 UK dates. Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham and Dublin have 2 tour dates each. Seffield and London have 4 each. Glasgow? Glasgow have TRNSMT. TRNSMT is a Scottish festival featuring many acts. Arctic Monkeys are headlining the 3rd date of TRNSMT (July 1st.) I believe Glasgow should have a second tour date as not only have many fans missed out on tickets to TRNSMT, but a lot of fans would like a concert solely dedicated to Arctic Monkeys to celebrate the bands return. Even if you won’t be attending, or already have tickets to another date, please think of the other fans who desperately wanted tickets. Thank you for signing this petition!!
Petition to Arts Council England
In the light of the cessation of NPO support for 'Jazz Services', we request Arts Council England enable adequate funding for 'Jazz Services' to continue their invaluable work for UK Jazz
Jazz Services have supported individual musicians, promoters and audiences throughout the UK, enabling enterprising artists and promoters to have their voices heard in the music industry. The loss or reduction of Jazz Services would be felt widely across musicians, promoters and jazz audiences. Jazz Services serves as an essential part of the infrastructure of the jazz arts community throughout the UK, crossing community borders. Examples of funding Jazz Services provides are: National Touring Support Schemes Rural Touring Support Schemes Jazz Promoter Awards Recording Support Scheme These awards directly enable venues across the UK to schedule and curate arts events. They enable independant artists across the UK to tour and record. They also enable audiences, (including rural areas) across the UK to be introduced to touring artists from outside their community. These are fundamental connecting infrastructures that have been established and maintained by Jazz Services (including their invaluable online database and directory), all of which would be under threat without adequate financial support. Jazz Services posted on their website: "Jazz Services is obviously extremely disappointed with the decision. This is a huge blow to the UK’s jazz artists, promoters and audiences, as without Jazz Services’ extremely popular and successful funding schemes – the National Touring Support Schemes, Rural Touring Support Schemes and the Jazz Promoter Awards among them - it leaves large portions of the country without provisions for funding and support for grass-roots jazz music." We the undersigned urge the Arts Council England to either reconsider its decision or enable alternative funding to allow 'Jazz Services' to continue their invaluable work for UK Jazz beyond March 2015.

A plaque to remember Cozy Powell.
There are some rare artists that are able to arouse emotions in their public, I mean real, intense emotions. Cozy Powell was one of these musicians. For those of you who don't know, we are talking about the drummer of bands like Rainbow, Whitesnake, Emerson Lake & Powell, Black Sabbath. His unique versatility allowed him to collaborate with almost everyone, from Ritchie Blackmore to Tony Iommi, from Jeff Beck to Michael Schenker as well as Gary Moore, Peter Green, Glenn Tipton, Yngwie Malmsteen and Brian May. He also recorded five solo albums! Cozy was well known for his playing that was solid and energetic, in addition he developed a completely personal style. His sound was particularly powerful, rich and deep but never lacking of dynamics. Even when he used the double bass tecnique he always did it with good taste, never just to show off or overkill the music but only if it was really necessary to boost the mood of the song. His talent was immediately evident to anyone who heard him play. But it was when you saw him performing that Cozy really blew you away! and it was not only for his legendary drum solos with symphonic tracks and fireworks. It was the gesture, somehow elegant despite the considerable amount of physical strength that was required for that kind of playing. Above all, every time you saw Cozy playing you knew that every part of him was right there, on the drum kit. No matter which genre of music he was playing, he always gave everything he had. “My advice to anyone is to play your heart out” he once said in an interview. Even though he liked to be aggressive in his playing, far away from the stage Cozy was a lovely human being, his colleagues remember his great sense of humor but also his sensitivity and generosity. Today, sixteen years after his untimely passing, his work and legacy have not been forgotten by those who, all over the world, had been touched by his music. It would be nice if the city in which he grew up could dedicate something to him, just as a recognition of his brilliant carrier and his incredible life. I think he deserve it, having given so much to rock music.
