2nd Annual Creator Credit Summit

DDEX, the international standards-setting organization dedicated to improving the exchange of data and information across the music industry, has announced the initial agenda for its 2nd annual Creator Credit Summit.

The event is free and open to all who have an interest in ensuring that creator credits are an integral part of the music recording process: songwriters, performers, session musicians, producers, mixers, engineers, and A&R teams; as well as developers of digital audio work stations, distribution platforms, and digital music services; in addition to international rights societies, music publishers and record labels.

Each day of the program will include a mix of informative panels and presentations addressing different aspects of creator credits and tools to assist in their proper use, and the event will conclude with an open discussion of all the participants. The panel topics cover identification and payment; the conundrum of entering credits in the recording process; DIY musicians and metadata; and music metadata in audio/visual works. Current panel speakers include:

  • Dae Bogan – The Mechanical Licensing Collective
  • Adam Gorgoni – Composer
  • Sara Jackson – Kobalt Music Group
  • Tony Brooke – Warner Music Group
  • Sylvia Massy – Record Producer
  • Jr. Regisford – New Heights/New Heat Entertainment
  • Maureen Droney – The Recording Academy
  • Brett Chance – DistroKid
  • David Amsel – Soundrop
  • MJ Herlihy – CDBaby
