At the recent Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing hosted a panel to a capacity crowd on Thursday, June 28 titled “The P&E Wing Presents: Getting Paid and Credited – Lessons in Self Preservation.”

There was a time in the music industry when album credits were second nature and easily found with vinyl records and CD packaging. With streaming dominating music in recent years, there has been a steep decline in credit delivery and access. In the digital world, capturing data during the recording process is more important than ever before. This includes credits such as creative contributor names and roles, along with song identifiers and technical information. Without this data, both monetization opportunities and payments to the recording’s creative contributors can be missed. As a musician, singer, songwriter, producer or engineer, your credits most likely influence your ability to get your next gig, and it’s also how you are identified for royalties. At this panel, the participants discussed how crediting is back in the forefront and how to take advantage of it.
