A UNIVERSAL EFFORT
3/18/20

UMPG prides itself on providing proactive support to its roster of songwriters and artists during the current pandemic. A series of creative initiatives and ideas are being circulated to UMPG writers globally, all tailored to remote circumstances.

From coordinating remote songwriting sessions via Skype and requesting producer beat packs to directly pitch to artists and writers, UMPG is also sourcing toplines and acapellas to send to EDM artists, among other efforts.

Additionally, artists and writers are reminded that they can revisit previously penned songs and try writing them with other writers, reproducing tracks that may have dated, writing to brief and sync, or even learn a new skill-based program like Protools and Logic—both of which offer free trial versions.

UMPG offices around the globe are also collaborating on a Working From Home playlist, which you can listen to here.
