If you've spent any time at all on Twitter or Instagram this weekend you probably noticed that the #SESACkillstheMMA situation we alerted you to last week has ignited our songwriter community to action with unprecedented focus, passion, and NUMBERS. Thank you for standing shoulder-to-shoulder with SONA (and our brother organization in Nashville, NSAI) in leading the charge to make SESAC withdraw their toxic amendment to the Music Modernization Act.
Major props to Ross Golan for creating the “I am a ….” graphic series that has been shared thousands of times in the last 48 hours. If you haven’t already shared one yourself, please grab a screen shot from below or go to @rossgolan or @andthewriteris on instagram or twitter and SHARE AWAY! And please, whenever you post about this issue, use #SESACkillstheMMA so we can keep our campaign jumping. SESAC, Harry Fox, and Blackstone are very worried right now, so we cannot ease up on the pressure!
Thanks to NMPA for boiling the issue down to one concise point. We tried a thousand times to come up with a bullet point and could not so seriously, THANKS!
Check out the other warriors who have jumped into the fight!
You guys, this is working. In the immortal words of Journey, don’t stop believin’! In this case, put the emphasis on DON’T STOP!!
Your SONA Steering Committee
