We stand for our members

It is common knowledge musicians make substantially less money as compared to the businesses that profit from their music. When musicians first start out, they have very little bargaining power. They are the targets of bad contracts, which sometimes follow them their whole careers. We want Musicians to receive their fair share of the profits from their music.

Membership

The Memo

  • I agree to the following:
    • I will not contract away my Musician Rights at a percentage greater than what I receive.
    • I will never give more than half of my rights away.
