September News

  • The AIMP has been named one of Billboard's 2018 Indie Power Players!  Billboard’s report recognizes achievement at independently-owned record labels, music publishers and distributors -- but also trade groups and executives who are advocates for the indie music community.  You can read the full list here.
  • The AIMP was proud to join ASCAP, AFM, AMA, BMI, CMPA, NMPA, NSAI, SESAC, RIAA, Recording Academy, SoundExchange, USAlliance for Music, et. al. in issuing a joint statement demanding that any renogotiation of the NAFTA trade agreement "provide clear and strong copyright protections, and not reward those seeking to profit unjustly from American creators." We urge our members to contact their representatives and encourage them to consider the impact any new trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, or Canada will have on the indie music publishing community, and the industry as a whole.
  • Read David Israelite/NMPA's op-ed in response to SiriusXM's comments against the Music Modernization Act.  
  • Check out the 3rd episode of Season 2 of the AIMP Nashville Pubcast.  Songwriter, Producer, Publisher, and DJ are only some of the positions that describe Jesse Frasure. Tim Hunze guides us through a conversation with Jesse about his rise to power as a publisher and one of the most sought-after track guys in the industry. We also get a look into Rhythm House Music on how they make the decision to sign their next talent.
