[Editor Charlie sez: File this under “our finest hour.” Universal Music Group sets a high bar for generously supporting its employees, artists and songwriters as well as the broader community in this announcement. We’re looking forward to a generous response from the music services, too.]
Supporting Our Artists and Songwriters
Our companies – including our labels, Universal Music Publishing Group, Universal Music Enterprises, Bravado as well as our independent distribution services – are offering various forms of assistance (such as interest-free royalty advances and fee waivers, among others) to help qualifying artists, songwriters and independent labels affected by COVID-19 weather these challenging times. We are also providing our artists with tools and platforms to reach fans and generate income when touring and other live appearances are not possible.
