Credit Is Due

I don't often shout about online campaigns but I wholeheartedly support this cause...

CREDIT IS DUE: The campaign to credit performers, producers, and engineers on all online music services

With physical CDs (and therefore accompanying booklets / credit sheets) fast becoming a minority distribution format it's incredibly important that those behind the music & production are more readily and publicly acknowledged (in full) when it comes to digital download sales.

Credits are essentially the combined CVs & business cards of those of us working in the creative industries. It can be hard enough to get proper acknowledgement on some CDs, but digital is 'almost' non-existant. If this doesn't change going forward how will the 'invisible people' build reputations and attract future work?

That is all...
