A lot has happened in the world of copyright law in the last three weeks. Major decisions by the US Supreme Court, as well as rules changes that are going into effect in the US Copyright Office will have a significant impact on how creators and businesses protect their intellectual property.
As you may have heard on Monday’s return episode of The Quinn Spinn, we’re teaming up with Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME) in Nashville to help musicians anywhere network and showcase their talents within the industry.

Frustrated by the lack of engagement on your Facebook posts? A lot of musicians – and entrepreneurs still learning the social media ropes – share in your pain.
The key to creating engaging content on Facebook – that which makes your fans come back for more – goes beyond simply posting a status update or a link. You have you use your real estate on the social network to draw people in, and then keep their attention.

If you’re like most independent musicians, you probably have some questions about royalty payments and how to make your music generate revenue.
That’s where Songtrust comes in, with a webinar series to tell you everything you need to know.
Since January 2016, Lehigh Valley Underground has featured some of the best and brightest independent musicians, in our region and others. We have welcomed and reviewed submissions of all genres, covered hundreds of performances, and have built a stronger community around the art being created every day, in our own backyard.
As we continue forward, we are inspired to take what we’ve done in eastern Pennsylvania and use it as fuel to think bigger. We envision a platform that connects independent musicians with their peers in other markets, as well as with the larger music industry and its vast educational resources. This, we believe, will take everyone’s game to the next level. However, we realize that we must walk the same walk and do that ourselves.
Today, we announce the next phase of our evolution: We are now the Underground Music Collective (UMC).
