As a musician you may well have seen, or heard the initials PRS,PPL or even MCPS, but do you know what they are and how they might benefit you financially?
I’m sure most musicians know that they should get paid if their song is played on the radio, but did you know that you should be receiving money for playing your own songs at a gig?

Pierless Music now has a Mixcloud account and we’ve started to post some ‘Cloudcasts’.
You can access our Mixcloud site either by clicking on the Mixcloud link in the Menu bar above, where there are more details about how we intend to use it, or by going here: http://www.mixcloud.com/PierlessMusic/
Mixcloud is a service that allows people to upload radio shows and podcasts for free. It also pays royalties, where appropriate and includes links to buy individual tracks that can be purchased via iTunes etc.
