Music creators are the ultimate small businesses. They start with a dream, perfect their craft, book shows, get paid by the gig, and understand and respect the hustle. Many musicians live paycheck to paycheck and may rely on a second job to keep their music careers alive. And too often, musicians – our family members, friends, and neighbors – don’t get the respect they deserve. For example, it shocks many outside the industry to learn that corporate broadcasters who control AM/FM radio refuse to pay performance royalties on the music they air —vital income creators deserve to rightfully collect.

While music creators are compensated for streams of their songs via digital providers and platforms such as SiriusXM and Spotify, they do not receive a dime from AM/FM radio stations.
