Getting Paid for Songs Played
Speaker: Joel Simpson
Date: May 11, 2 pm EST
Overview and Q & A about who pays and how you get paid when your song is played
Are you getting every penny you should be getting for your songs that are played on the radio, on Spotify, or Youtube? And who pays? Do you need a publishing company? Joel Simpson has done some deep dives into this subject and graciously agreed to share what he knows and answer questions. He will cover the basics of registering your work with one of the PROs (BMI/ASCAP), and making sure you’re set up to receive streaming royalties, mechanical licensing fees and more. This tech/Q&A is for anyone who is just getting started or is still confused by the process.
Folk DJ & Friends Peer Gathering
Next Gathering: Wednesday, May 12
Times: 8 pm Eastern
A monthly meet up for Folk Djs and those interested in talking to the Folk DJs. The topics range from the way radio has evolved, going digital, producing a show in the time of COVID, diversity in programming, and what you had for dinner. All are welcome to join the conversation.
Emotional Support Peer Gathering
Next gathering: May 13
Times: 2 pm Eastern
With all that has taken place (and not taken place) over the past year, we recognize the need for self-care and emotional support during this time. In response, FARM has established a separate opportunity for our community to meet in a small, safe, and confidential space to work through personal struggles. Attendance will be limited to the first 15 registrants*.
The sessions will be moderated by FARM volunteers and are not a replacement for professional support or therapy.
*We’ll be watching for demand to make adjustments as needed.
Bi-Weekly Community Peer Gathering
Next gathering: May 20
Times: 2 pm Eastern
Come one come all, near and far and join us for some great conversation about pretty much anything that’s on your mind. These Peer Group Sessions are open to the entire Folk Community regardless of where you live or what role you play in the community.
You only need to register once to attend any of the future sessions. You’ll be sent a reminder email prior to each session, but you can use this link every time.
