We reported last month on plans for a parliamentary inquiry in the UK into the economics of music streaming. Industry bodies, artists, DSPs and other interested parties have been submitting their evidence, and now we know who’s going to be offering their views at the first oral evidence hearing next Tuesday (24 November).
The session will kick off with evidence from the founder of the #BrokenRecord campaign Tom Gray, as well as Clintons Solicitors partner Tom Frederikse and CC Young & Co streaming auditor and accountant Colin Young. It’ll be followed by a session of artists: Elbow’s Guy Garvey, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien (also a Featured Artists Coalition veteran) and Nadine Shah. Further hearings and speakers have yet to be announced.
