Who Are We?

 
 
 
Wooden Gavel.F11.2k.jpg

An advocacy organization formed by and for professional songwriters to fight for our rights, including:

  • Our right to fair pay in the age of digital media

  • Our right to speak out and give a collective voice to the songwriting community

  • In lieu of a union to uphold the standards of safety and equality in our workplaces, where music is created

What does SONA do?

The current rates paid to writers by music streaming media companies are grossly unfair, unsustainable, and unacceptable.

We’ve assembled some of the most fiercely passionate and hardworking people from all corners of the songwriting world to educate, strategize, and mobilize…and with our support team, comprised of truly the best creative-rights legal minds in our industry, we are making a difference.

+ How can you help?

By joining SONA you can help change things for the better for our songwriting community. With a bigger and louder voice, we can help increase our rates so that they are fair and sustainable and uphold high standards and equality in our work places.

+ Why join SONA?

Did you know that roughly ¾ of what a songwriter earns is decided and controlled by outdated government regulations that have seen very little change in the last 75+ years?

Did you know that songwriters are not allowed to unionize under current U.S. law?

There have been a number of well-intentioned songwriter organizations created over the years but because of these outdated regulations, songwriters have had a splintered voice at best. 
 It’s time for all songwriters to come together and have a unified voice. SONA was created to be that voice... AND to make sure that it’s heard!
