City to hold royalty workshop for musicians

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

On Sept. 16, the Music and Entertainment Division of the city’s Economic Development Department and the Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts are hosting a workshop called “Get Your Money: Registering for SoundExchange, Collecting Performance Royalties and Union IP Funds.” The workshop, which is for local musicians, lawyers and managers, will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Entrepreneur Center of Austin. In a press release, EDD Director Kevin Johns explained, “Digital radio plays new music from new artists all the time, so the list of artists with royalties owed to them constantly evolves. Even if your name is not on the current list of artists with money waiting, you should still attend the workshop to sign up for future royalties. … The Austin Music Census told us that our artists are working hard and we want to help them get all the money to which they’re entitled.” More information about the workshop can be found here.
