At the third annual performer meeting for UK phonographic performance right collecting society PPL, Marillion’s Mark Kelly was elected to the Performer Board. In his statement of application, Kelly commented that he is unhappy with the current situation whereby PPL has more representation among labels than performers, complaining in particular that income for non-qualifying performers is paid to labels instead of to a fund for artist. In addition he suggested that the submission of performer line-up information for tracks should be handled by artists not by labels. “Mark brings with him talent and passion for music which are two essential ingredients”, said PPL CEO Fran Nevrkla. “We welcome him as a member of both the Performer Board and the main PPL Board and I congratulate Mark on his election.”
