Blake Morgan Launches http://www.irespectmusic.org and #irespectmusic hashtag
“We artists and musicians have the right to expect from our profession what others expect from their professions. That through hard work and determination, perspiration and inspiration, we’ll have the same fair shot to realize our dreams, answer our callings, support our families. I respect my profession. I respect artists. I respect music.”
—Blake Morgan, Recording artist, producer, label owner

Blake’s Facebook page is already buzzing!
Musician and artists rights advocate Blake Morgan has launched a new website, http://irespectmusic.org/ and has started the hashtag #irespectmusic
Blake is a solo artist, owns and runs his label ECR Music Group and has insipred the music industry with his editorials on Huffington Post!
Blake writes: “At the heart of everyone’s concerns lies a common understanding that the royalty payments from radio, whether terrestrial (AM/FM), satellite, or Internet, are uneven and unfair. Everyone involved in the argument feels they’re unfair, whether they feel they’re paying too much, or getting too little. That’s because terrestrial, satellite, and Internet radio each pay different rates. Mostly this is due to the near-century between the establishment of terrestrial radio and its satellite and Internet counterparts, and the birth of the entire music industry during that time.”
