ASCAP Launches New Coronavirus Resource For Music Creators

ASCAP has launched “Music Unites Us,” a new resource especially for music creators to help respond to their unique needs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tailored to help songwriters stay healthy, creative, connected and financially stable during this uncertain time, it includes information on how to receive ASCAP royalties through direct deposit, online works registration, available financial assistance programs, and access to free services from ASCAP Wellness Benefit providers such as Aaptiv, BetterHelp and Shine. Information can be found on the site at ascap.com/musicunitesus.

The pandemic has profoundly disrupted life for those in the industry who depend on touring and live shows, as well as those who collaborate on music in person. Based on research from its 2019 U.S. Music Creator Wellness Survey and anticipated effects on music creators from the COVID-19 crisis, ASCAP is working to provide more resources on the page based on real-time wants and needs, and will promote it on social media using #MusicUnitesUs.

ASCAP has also joined a coalition of songwriter organizations urging Congress to provide more relief for music creators in any new stimulus packages.
