I am an active member of the UMAW Streaming Committee where we are working for a more just model of music streaming compensation for musicians. If you’d like to get involved, let me know.
During my dissertation research I worked with the Downtown Memphis Commission to secure low-cost parking for Beale Street musicians. This is an effort to help offset unpredictable tips/tourism-based wages. If you are a Memphis musician interested in low-cost parking, contact Beale Street Management. I am happy to speak with folks interested in implementing similar initiatives in other areas.
