Music Industry News – MLC Unveils Three New Hires, Spotify Acquires Locker Room & More!



The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) has added on three new leadership hires with Kristen Johns (Chief Legal Officer), Nathan Osher (Assistant General Counsel – Publisher Relations) and Andrew Mitchell (Head of Analytics and Automation) earlier this month. With all three based in Nashville, they will be responsible for various tasks, such as leading the organization’s strategic legal affairs, managing and overseeing the resolution of claims and litigation-related matters, and leading The MLC’s analytics and automation activities.

Audio streaming service Spotify has recently announced its acquisition of Betty Labs, the creators of live talk app Locker Room. According to the company, the buyout “builds on its work to create the ‘future formats of audio’ and will accelerate Spotify’s entry into the live audio space”.

UK collecting society PPL stated that its Q1 2021 distributions to artists and recorded music rightsholders were down 30% from the Q1 2020 amount due to the impact of COVID-19 on performance rights collections. PPL’s distributions from international collections held up fairly well, down 9.9%.
