Earlier this week it was announced that Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) and PRS for Music will be moving their national headquarters from London to Leicester city centre. This is the same city as our UK headquarters so could be a positive opportunity.
Their new joint venture will begin around July 2017 and will be based in Mercury Place.
Here at Horus Music we are very excited about this move and for PPL and PRS to join us in Leicester. This has been our home for almost 10 years now and amongst the vibrant music that is played here we enjoy the Midland Mainline service meaning it takes us less than an hour to get into London city centre; less time than many those that are based around London itself.
We have been partners with both PRS for Music and PPL for many years, and we have seen the benefits that their service provides to our many independent artists and record label clients, which includes the licensing of musical composition and lyrics on behalf of songwriters, composers and publishers as well as the licensing of recorded music for record companies and performers which is played in public or in digital media.
CEO and Managing Director of Horus Music, Nick Dunn, adds: We’re very happy to see that more and more companies are realising that there are opportunities for business, especially in the music industry, that are available outside of London and have the additional benefit of being both financially and environmentally friendly. We welcome PPL and PRS for Music to such a diverse and growing city.”
Everyone at Horus Music looks forward to many more years of a successful partnership with both of these companies and hope we that our relationship will grow even further as we work together in the city of Leicester to help the musicians, songwriters and record labels of Leicestershire and beyond.
