BMI has partnered with live concert asset management company Muzooka to streamline set list reporting for its songwriters and composers. The move marks Muzooka’s first alliance with a U.S. performing rights organization; Muzooka has previously partnered with PROs SOCAN (Canada) and BUMA/STEMRA (the Netherlands).
In addition to reporting on BMI’s official site, BMI affiliates who already use Muzooka’s platform to manage their live concert assets such as artist photos and social media links can now also report setlists from a central concert management hub.
“Songs are the foundation for any live concert, and we’re in the business of making sure our songwriters, composers and music publishers get paid when their music is played publicly,” said Alison Smith, EVP, Distribution, Publisher Relations & Administration Services, BMI. “This new partnership with Muzooka gives our affiliates an alternative way to report their setlists, which in turn helps facilitate the distribution of royalties when their music is performed at concerts around the world.”
“As a creator-focused company, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to the livelihood of touring artists by making setlist reporting a little easier,” said Muzooka CEO Shawn Wilson. “Concerts are a huge part of the overall music experience for fans around the world, and without great songs, there would be no live shows. Knowing that Muzooka is working together with BMI to support its songwriters and rights holders is paramount to us.”
