SOCAN Launches 'Encore!' Program To Pay Artists For Live Streams

SOCAN has stepped up in a big way to support Canadian musicians with Encore! SOCAN's new program will pay music creators for live online concerts. “Like so many Canadians, SOCAN member songwriters, composers, and music publishers are facing tough times, with the loss of revenue from touring and in-person concerts,” said Jennifer Brown, Interim CEO of SOCAN. “Many of our members have stepped up for fans, staging online concerts to bring the public together and keep their careers moving ahead, so it’s only fair that they get paid for their generous work, with our Encore! program.”

 

An approximate of $200,000 will be allocated each quarter to the new program for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To receive an Encore! payment for a live music event on Facebook or Instagram:

  • At least ten songs/compositions must be performed live, or a live performance of at least 30 minutes must take place, on Facebook or Instagram ,from March 15, 2020, to March 7, 2021 (inclusive).
  • At least 100 people must have accessed the online event.
  • A set list of all music performed has to be sent via SOCAN’s Notification of Live Music Performance (NLMP) form at socan.com, with the “venue” identified as Facebook or Instagram.
  • Claims must be made within 90 days of the Facebook/Instagram concert occurring.

Each online concert will be eligible for a total payment of $150, with shares of royalties going to all rights holders of the music performed.
