Deadmau5 and Other Notable Artists Form GRAMMY Creators Alliance
During the airing of last night's 57th annual awards show, the GRAMMYs announced the creation of the GRAMMY Creators Alliance, a coalition comprised of some of our the music industries most notable songwriters, performers and studio professionals that serve as a powerful voice to advance pro-creator legislation. With Congress reviewing and revising national copyright laws, this alliance has formed to ensure new and future generations of artists have an influential voice.
The goals of the GRAMMY Creators Alliance, as noted on the GRAMMYs official website, are to advise Congressional leaders as they develop legislation that will ensure fair pay for all creators on all platforms, to work within the industry to ensure fair royalty rates to creators on all platforms, and to engage the creator community and empower them to advocate for their rights.
Representing the electronic music world on this council is Deadmau5, who joins the GRAMMY Creators Alliance alongside Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Dr. Luke, Jennifer Hudson, Jimmy Jam, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Lady Antebellum, Ryan Tedder, and Steven Tyler, rounding out a collective of influential artists in their respective genres.
GRAMMY Creators Alliance member Jennifer Hudson stated at last night's awards, "Together, we willl advise those who make policy in music and in government so that our next generation of creators are able to make tomorrow's music as great as tonight's."
The effect that the alliance will have remains to be seen. However, you can stay informed on the GRAMMY Creators Alliance and the artists involved by signing up for updates on the official website.
