DIY Music Festival

I wanted to tell you about an amazing festival happening here in New Orleans called Search and Restore NOLA. It’s 3 night blowout celebrating the incredible creative composers and improvisers in New Orleans, jazz and beyond. We’ve already booked the three venues and over 20 acts. At this point, we’re running a fundraiser to pay the artists. If you’re interested, visit the kickstarter here:

If you can think of anyone else who might want to know about this festival, feel free to pass this along.

Thanks for your time,

Search and Restore New Orleans

Royalty Agreement

In an agreement that could pave the way for more varied ways of distributing digital music, three major music trade groups have filed an agreement that sets mechanical royalty rates and standards with an eye toward supporting “cutting-edge business models to help consumers access and enjoy music.”

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), National Music Publishers Association (NMPA) and Digital Media Association (DiMA) are filing an industry-wide agreement that fully resolves the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) Rate Proceeding under Section 115 of the Copyright Act.
