Dear Apple Music,
Apple has always been at the forefront of innovation. By embracing this change, Apple Music will set the standard for what it means to showcase those who work behind the scenes. Therefore encouraging other platforms to follow suit, ultimately benefiting the entire music ecosystem.
Music is a collaborative art. While singers and artists usually stand at the forefront, a vast network of talented individuals is working hard behind the scenes. Producers, engineers, assistant engineers, runners, studios, songwriters, musicians, and many others contribute significantly to the soundtracks of our lives. These professionals remain in the background, their contributions not yet prominently acknowledged. We are in an era of transparency and knowledge sharing; therefore, acknowledgement is more crucial than ever.
We hope you take this suggestion on board and give full credit where credit is due.
The Music Producer’s Guild.
