This may be the biggest opportunity we will collectively get to make the case for a fairer deal for songwriters, composers, and performers.

Tell MPs on the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee how the economics of music streaming are affecting you.

If you’ve got 5 minutes

Email the DCMS Select Committee at cmscom@parliament.uk in support of the Musicians’ Union submission.

If you’re not sure what to say, here’s a template you can use as a starting point.

Remember to add how the economics of music streaming affect your personally – it could make all the difference.

If you’ve got a little more time

Give your own evidence to the inquiry via the DCMS Select Committee website.

There are five questions, and you can answer some or all of them.

If you’re not sure what to say, our guide to giving evidence includes useful tips and ideas to fix streaming – including asks that you can copy and paste across, and space for you to add your own experiences.

Still got questions? Take a look at our FAQs for more on who should give evidence, why it matters, and other questions.

You can also ask us on Twitter @IvorsAcademy and @WeAreTheMU or join the discussion using the hashtags #FixStreaming and #KeepMusicAlive.

Your voice matters

This is a defining moment in our industry. It may be the biggest opportunity we will collectively get to make the case for a fairer deal for songwriters, composers, and performers.

And the more people who write in, the more likely it is that the inquiry will listen.
