MARTY GETS NMPA AWARD, SAYS: GIVE WRITERS SOME CREDIT
6/14/17

Sony/ATV chief Marty Bandier is calling on streaming services to list songwriters on their sites alongside recording-artist names.

During his speech at the National Music Publishers' Association gathering today—where he received the Lifetime Service Award from Motown great Smokey Robinson—Bandier renewed his call for tunesmiths to be "equitably rewarded" in the streaming era. He described the desired listing of songwriters on DSPs "a tiny step but a hugely symbolic one" that will amplify their importance.

Bandier also expressed immense gratitude while joking that getting a Lifetime Achievement Award raises expectations that "This guy is going to be playing a lot more golf pretty soon and having lunch with his wife more often than usual." But the necessities of the moment, he added, prompted him to speak out.
