“Small venues and clubs are the lifeblood for songwriters and bands,” explains O’Neill. “These venues support live, local music, as well as touring artists and are the cradle of tomorrow’s stars.
We’re committed to helping songwriters get paid for their music in these venues, which provide a vital stage for their music.”
