- Artists Forward 2022: A Year of Expanding Support for Sony Music Creators
- Dec 19, 2022
Throughout 2022, Sony Music’s Artists Forward initiative delivered more benefits and services to on roster and legacy talent around the world—from new and expanded services to increased engagement on key issues that make a difference to creators.
As part of these efforts, we’ve enhanced the range of wellness offerings available to SME talent under our Artist Assistance Program and helped greater numbers of our artists worldwide make use of our free counseling services. We’ve expanded the criteria of our Legacy Unrecouped Balance Program, allowing more long-term creators around the world to qualify for pay through on future earnings. We’ve delivered more critical data analysis to help our talent identify audiences anywhere and everywhere and lean into a range of creative and commercial opportunities. We’ve also grown global adoption for our Cash Out and Real Time Advances features, which SME participants have used to quickly and conveniently access millions of dollars in earnings.
