MUSIC BUSINESS WISDOM WEDNESDAY
We have got to keep our eyes on the laws around the country and prevent actions like this. With all of the growth in the music sector in Huntsville, we must be diligent to keep our freelance businesses protected and watch incoming scams from people who want to exploit us.
Here's what California recently did that is a BAD MOVE for freelance musicians writers, etc. LINK IN COMMENTS.
A new California law is supposed to help millions of freelancers by dictating that they be hired as employees.
“It makes sure that the 1 million independent contractors in California get the wages and benefits that they deserve,” says the law’s author, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.
But freelancers like musician Ari Herstand tell John Stossel, “You’re thinking you’re helping us, but you’re not … this could single handedly crash the California music economy.”
He points out that he’ll now have to put every musician he hires “on payroll, W2 him, get workers’ comp insurance, unemployment insurance … pay payroll taxes. I also have to now hire a payroll company.”
Musicians aren’t the only ones hurt.
The law targeted rideshare companies like Uber. Politicians claimed that the companies abuse drivers. But now many drivers object to the law, saying that they like being independent.
At first, the media were also big supporters of the law.
“Gig workers’ win,” wrote Vox.
But once the law passed, “Vox Media … cut hundreds of freelance jobs,” reported CNBC.
Assemblywoman Gonzalez was unapologetic. “These aren’t jobs," she sneered.
Herstand’s answer: “You're preventing us from doing what we want to do.”

"I'm making music for myself. And when I feel good playing it, it gives me energy, I feel great about it," the 87-year-old trumpet player tells GRAMMY.com. "If someone else happens to like it, it's a big win for me."
“the goal I think, for all artists, is to find your own voice, your own way of doing it, your own stamp. That's what I believe all artists should be looking for.”
My work buddy doesn’t like me being on my laptop. How did she do that on google mail? I had to close the laptop in urgency. 💻 I think the Christmas tree is in trouble this year! 🌲

No truer words for an artist.
The times that I lost sight of this is when I believe that my music was least impactful and least successful. I began trusting in what people thought and less in the ability to create music that was meant for something special. We gotta always remember that music is art (or should be) and is always subjective (or should be). We are creators, created with a great ability to do something that most hope to recognize that they can do in their lifetime. The wealth is in enjoyment, the feeling it brings to people, and the times it get people through….The times it gets you through. If you make any money from it, know that that is great , but is the icing and not cake. Focus on the creating and being in a good environment to do so. Trust this, and I’ve been doing this a looong time…you wanna make money , but from something you love. It is the only way you will truly be fulfilled. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

My mom found my American Idol audition ticket from 2007. I didn’t make it past the first round cattle call…
I wasn’t really into sports growing up but this feels like the equivalent of your mom saving your 10th place trophy. 😂🏆
"David Israelite, the CEO and President of the NMPA, confirmed in the past hour: “Today the [CRB] reaffirmed the 15.1% headline rate increase we earned four long years [ago], confirming that songwriters need and deserve a significant raise from the digital streaming services who profit from their work.” "
Bottom line: The streaming services are going to have to fork over a pile of cash to publishers and songwriters…
