SONGWRITERS PUSH FOR PAY
3/23/21

Songwriters and artists in the U.K. and U.S. have backed a new campaign from The Ivors Academy, #PaySongwriters, that is asking labels to pay writers a minimum daily allowance and offer at least four points on master recordings from the label's share.

Three hundred writers, along with SONA and artist org The 100 Percenters, have signed an open letter to all record labels asking for a minimum daily allowance of £75 ($120) to each songwriter working with an artist to cover expenses in addition to points. The letter says the per diem would be non-recoupable from the artist share and points should be on net revenue and shared among non-performing songwriters on a record.

Supporters include MNEK (pictured), Amy Wadge, Ross Golan, Fred Gibson, Mikkel Eriksen of Stargate, Paloma Faith, Savan Kotecha, Jess Glynne, Jimmy Hogarth, Jin Jin, Ina Wroldsen, Tre Jean-Marie, and Iain James.
