The Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) held its sold-out third annual Indie Music Publishing Summit yesterday at the 3 West Club in New York City. Highlights included keynotes from legendary songwriter Diane Warren, U.S. Register of Copyrights Karyn Temple, and music supervisor Sue Jacobs, as well as the release of new data on the state of independent music publishing, the first-ever Songwriter Track, and much more.
David Israelite, President of the NMPA; Mitch Glazier, President of the RIAA; Richard Burgess, President of the A2IM; and Teri Nelson-Carpenter, President & CEO of Reel Muzik Werks LLC and the AIMP’s National Chair and LA Chapter President came together onstage with moderator Robert Levine of Billboard for the “In Conversation with the US Alliance” panel, discussing what it took to pass the MMA and the challenges that still lie ahead for music rights-holders.
This year the AIMP also introduced a new Songwriter Track to the Summit, which culminated with the “Women in Song” panel in the Solarium. Featuring songwriters Brandy Clark, Jessie Jo Dillon, and Michelle Lewis and moderated by attorney, musician, and NYU professor Judy Tint, the session was an in-depth discussion of what it means to be successful as a songwriter, from clearing samples, to learning to work with co-writers, to standing up for their own music.
