Music creators and organisations call upon DCMS Select Committee to #FixStreaming and get fairer pay from streaming services

Musicians and music organisations continue their fight for the government to recognise that the revenue generated by music streaming giants such as Spotify is not being fairly distributed down the line to bands, producers, musicians and songwriters - with 8 out of 10 music creators bringing in less than £200 per year from streaming.
