Royalties for sessions in the Australian Music Industry

Did you know, the music you listen to that was made in Australia, the artist most likely wasn’t paid in royalties during the session of the making of music. This isn’t the best for the industry as artists are more than likely to record their music overseas in countries like the UK, US and Canada even though with trade deals overseas they still are not paid out as much as they can be. The UK is now following in Australia’s footsteps by not paying royalties for sessions. We spoke to Dr Rod Davies, Lecturer in popular music and songwriting from Monash University to discuss the Australian music industry.
