How does the music industry help the sector?

What is the music industry approach to sustaining grass-roots music

In our time of crisis, how do we support the survival of artists and venues at the sharp end who are faced with a downturn in income, a cash flow crisis, a reduction in administrative capacity, and audiences that have vanished?

Trinity is very much still here and we're working hard as a team to find ways to support artists to make work and get paid, through our projects and wider venue activity. We don't have all the answers, so if you're an artist in Bristol and have an idea that you would like to share with us, please get in touch. We might not be able to work miracles, but we're willing to try our best.

This is our call to our bigger brothers to see if there's anything you can do to help a sector under threat.

Would PRS and PPL consider suspending or delaying the reporting of licenses, for example? Perhaps there could be a strategy developed that looks at redistributing music royalties from those most established and successful artists in consultation with artists? Some sort of scheme that seeks to safeguard the future of those whose livelihoods have been suddenly severed, that could be supported and endorsed by those who may not in the short term need to draw on their royalty revenues so as to help ease the pressure felt by venues across the world? Standing up for music rights for the long-haul.

Whatever the mechanism, our sector urgently needs its more resourced partners to consider their strategy giving empathy, leniency and grace and providing practical support to grass-roots venues and creatives who are most in need and are at the coal face of this industry crisis. Let's come together to build some solutions.

Thank you, big love and stay safe.
