Erik Steigen, CEO of USA Media Rights, participated as a speaker at the Digital Entertainment World Expo 2018 in Marina Del Rey, California on February 5, 2018. The topic was "THE EARNING REVOLUTION: DISRUPTING ROYALTIES IN MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT."

The panelists, in addition to Erik Steigen, were Tyron Bennion, SVP of Global Sales, Hyperwallet, and Matt Burns, Co-Founder and General Counsel, INGrooves. The panel was moderated by Matt Coleman, CEO of Magnify World, who stepped up in Ted Cohen's absence at a moment's notice.

The panel discussion focused on what's broken in the distribution of royalties, how to retain artists in the gig economy, and issues with incomplete and erroneous data.

For more information about how Hyperwallet and USA Media Rights are changing the landscape of royalty payments, contact Erik Steigen.

#NewMusicFriday - Gladius James "We All Got Issues"

Out today - Gladius James' second single "We All Got Issues" - listen and download now! 

Described by Earmilk as soul-soaked tune, "We All Got Issues" itself is like a hush, with vocals that blend in both the subtle and the insistent as James tells his story (along with everyone else's). 

In his own words, "We All Got Issues' is my life story in a song. It's clear that my life is very different to yours. No one goes through the same set of events and gets to the same place as each other. But we all have our hardships along the way. The hardships themselves are different, but we all have them. For me, love is the one thing that has consistently contributed to the highest highs and the lowest lows, and I know that most people can agree they feel the same way."
