Music management app Artist Growth and BMI have announced a partnership to help musicians simplify the process of collecting performance royalties. BMI affiliates will now be able to register for royalties using any Artist Growth-equipped mobile device as soon as they finish playing a show.
BMI writers are being offered a free six-month trial of Artist Growth, which launched in Nashville in January 2012 with the goal of providing an entire toolkit for managing a music career. In coming months, BMI Live participants will be able to submit performances and set lists through Artist Growth as well.
“Artist Growth is an innovative new digital platform that presents exciting possibilities for BMI performing songwriters to manage and organize their schedules and tour support,” said Jody Williams, BMI VP Writer/Publisher Relations. “We look forward to offering access to Artist Growth to all BMI-affiliated writers, and working closely with their team to offer greater digital integration with BMI’s groundbreaking BMI Live program.”
During SXSW, Artist Growth also announced partnerships with CD Baby, Americana Music Association, PledgeMusic, Folk Alliance, NYU Steinhardt’s Music Business Program, Belmont University and more.
