London, UK, 19th April 2024

Gee Davy, Interim CEO and Chief Policy Officer for AIM, said: “The independent music community has fairness at its heart, setting AIM up more than 20 years ago to work on levelling the playing field for all. This is reflected in the Global Independent Values recently reasserted by our Worldwide Independent Network.  Independent music businesses respect the issues raised by creators and share in frustrations around market disparities and revenue squeeze, such as the concerns we have raised about unintended negative consequences of recent streaming changes on independently released and emerging artists and those from diverse communities.

“AIM is proud to participate in the DCMS-led Creator Remuneration working group and the opportunity to hear further from creator groups.  We look forward to working collaboratively to achieve growth, assess the data behind the issues, and ensure widespread best practice and fair returns from streaming for all participants – musicians, creative workers and music businesses alike.”
