The British Academy Of Songwriters, Composers And Authors has announced Dan Moore as its new Head Of Marketing And Membership. He has previously worked for Warner Music UK and US collecting society ASCAP, as well as in artist management.

But how does he feel about his new job? I’ll let him tell you: “I am thrilled to be joining such an esteemed organisation that does so much important work for songwriters. With so many changes in the way music is being consumed it’s crucial that the writers are being represented fairly. I’m looking forward to working with [BASCA CEO] Vick Bain and her team, and with the 60th Ivor Novello Awards around the corner it’s a very exciting year for BASCA”.

Bain added: “We are very much looking forward to Dan Moore joining our team; his is a pivotal role and we are sure his proven experience and contacts throughout the music industry will bring huge benefits both to BASCA and all of our members”.

Which is all good. Though “very much looking forward to” is no “thrilled”, is it?
