PPL Becomes Official Music Licensing Partner of HMA19

Music licensing organisation PPL is sponsoring the Heavy Music Awards for a third consecutive year, becoming the Official Music Licensing Partner of HMA19.

Sarah Mitchell, Director of Member Services at PPL, said, “Rock music has produced some of the most iconic recordings of all time, evolving over the years and pushing creative boundaries. It is also an important genre for PPL and continues to provide a significant contribution to our music industry’s success at home and abroad. We are honoured to support an event that showcases its foremost talents, and wish everyone shortlisted the best of luck.

PPL has become increasingly important to the industry as it works tirelessly to collect money for tens of thousands of performers and record companies, and this partnership geared towards helping those who may be missing out on what’s rightfully there’s by focusing on exactly what PPL does, and how.

Founded in 1934, the company licenses recorded music in the UK when it is played in public or broadcast and ensures that revenue flows back to its members. These include both independent and major record companies, together with performers ranging from emerging grassroots artists through to established session musicians and influential festival headliners.

Co-founder of the Heavy Music Awards, Dave Bradley, said, “It is wonderful to be welcoming PPL back to the HMAs for a third year, we are excited that we will be working alongside PPL’s incredible, passionate team once again to help spread the word about the very important work they do. Simply learning about what PPL does is compelling enough, so helping artists and record labels recover funds that they didn’t know they were due is a huge added bonus! We can’t wait to get started.”
