UNITED STATES OF MUSIC DOT-COM

A new interactive website has aggregated data from throughout the music industry to provide a state-by-state breakdown of the economic and cultural impact the industry has across America.

At 50StatesofMusic.com, A2IM, ASCAP, BMI, RIAA and SoundExchange have brought together the 411 on music businesses, royalty recipients  and songwriters on state-specific homepages that also include local highlights, festivals, schools and conferences. We learned that the Everly Brothers are from Iowa, that there’s an Indie Music Week in Jackson, Miss., and 1,526 songwriters call Montana home.

New data from Economists Incorporated that shows that the U.S. music industry contributes more than $143b in annual value to the country’s economy, including the support of nearly 2 million jobs for American workers. The site breaks down that data, state-by-state, as well.

“This new site finally paints a proper picture of the U.S. music industry as one that is truly local, growing, and more important than ever,” said RIAA Chairman and CEO Mitch Glazier. “We hope that the entire music business, fans, and policymakers find this a useful resource as we continue our work toward a bright future for U.S. music.”

“50 States of Music captures the tremendous positive economic impact of our industry—one that extends far beyond music’s creators and is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of professionals in communities across the country,” said Michael Huppe, President and CEO, SoundExchange. “We are proud to support these creators by providing them with the accurate and timely revenue needed to advance their work.”
