Merlin and Deezer have renewed their licensing deal, with the indie label digital rights agency signing up to the streaming platform’s new royalty model. "I'm very happy to see that Merlin and its members are embracing Deezer's artist centric model and joining us in redefining artist remuneration in the streaming era, to make sure artists are paid more fairly for their music," said Jeronimo Foglueira, the soon to depart CEO of Deezer. "From the start, our ambition has been that the new model should serve all artists with a consistent fanbase, including the indie acts represented by the membership of Merlin”. 


Blackstar Agency has appointed Róisín Warner as its Head Of Marketing. “I’ve been an admirer of Blackstar for a long time”, she says. “The way they identify and plug resource gaps in the market is more important now than ever. As the landscape changes in its approach to resource, we can continue to provide a personal touch”.
