Amber Dee is working for the live team at the PRS.
“I look after the PRS accounts of music venues and festivals in the UK. I’m the first point of contact when they have questions about how to categorise events, which events need to be covered by PRS and what information they need to collect from the artists and promoters.
The work I do means that the royalties are collected from the venues, then we have these royalties to distribute to the artists.
I went to V Festival where I had to find the artists backstage and ask them for their set lists so that we could make sure they got their royalties. It’s a big thing, especially for up and coming singer-songwriters as it helps fund them to continue what they’re doing. I’ve learned a lot about royalties and different types of music venues and events. Music copyright is very complicated.”
