Music Tectonics

May 25, 2023

This week, Tristra Newyear Yeager sits down with Kris Ahrend, CEO of the Mechanical Licensing Collective to explore the business side of the music business. Learn more about the MLC, a non-profit organization established under the Music Modernization Act (2018) to administer digital mechanical licenses in the US. Find out how the MLC is illuminating the “black box” by distributing payments for historically unpaid royalties. Discover how the MLC is empowering creators with the knowledge and tools to make informed decisions through infographics, webinars, and live events. Tune in for a live interview and demo with Matt Cannon, co-founder and Chief Growth Officer of Jamstik, from the 2023 NAMM Show. What if music was no longer defined by genre? Find out in this week’s episode.
