Grammy is hosting a petition on its website in an attempt to get digital music services to list writers, producers and instrumentalists on track credits.
Titled Digital Music Services Should Tell Fans Who Made the Music, the organisation urges services to ‘Give Fans The Credit’ as a statement reads:
“Real music fans want to know who wrote, produced and played on their favorite tracks and all music creators deserve to be credited for their work. Credits in the hands of fans will lead to more music discovery, as fans will want to know what other songs a songwriter wrote or a producer produced. Help us convince digital music services to tell fans who made the music they enjoy.
“We believe digital music services should include credits for the songwriters, musicians, producers and engineers on the screen, just as they do for the artist and song. Let's give both music fans and creators the credit they deserve.”
The petition is hosted on a dedicated page on the Grammy website.
