We are very pleased to be joined by one of our newest board members, musician and composer Orphy Robinson, who will talk about the #FIXSTREAMING campaign which he’s involved with.As part of the enquiry, politicians have examined the economic impact music streaming is having on artists, record labels and the sustainability of the wider music industry.
“With streaming currently accounting for more than half of the global music industry’s revenue, this inquiry will look at the business models operated by platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Google Play. Music streaming in the UK brings in more than £1 billion in revenue with 114 billion music streams in the last year, however artists can be paid as little as 13% of the income generated.”

At the start of the meet-up, Orphy will give a short introduction to the campaign and highlight some of its key findings. We will then open the floor and invite members to ask questions and talk about their own opinions and experiences with streaming platforms.
