Following Bandcamp's announcement of their financial support of artists in light of the current COVID-19 situation, music licensing platform Songtradr has also stepped up in their efforts to help their artists' livelihood.
Earlier today (20/03), they announced that they will be giving their share of any new licensing transactions directly to their artists until 18 April 2020. Founder Paul Wiltshire urges readers to support artists in an official statement, writing: "Artists are the lifeblood of our industry. It is their inspiration, hard work, and persistence that soundtrack our lives. If you are a music buyer, you can support artists through Songtradr by licensing their original music for your projects. 100% of Songtradr licensing fees will be received by the artist at this time."
"We hope you will join us in encouraging a spirit of collaboration and positivity that extends far beyond the end of this strange time," he added.
