Welcome to the VSA!
Vocalist Songwriters Alliance The VSA is a new non-profit organisation exclusively for professional vocalist/songwriters in all genres of music.
Over the last few years, we have noticed a common pattern in the music industry. Vocalist/songwriters have been finding it very hard to find any regulation or security in there work, especially in the EDM sector. We kept hearing about their dissatisfaction and how they wanted things to change. As Artists, they wanted to see the music industry become transparent, fair and balanced on both a creative and a business level.
The VSA saw that this was an opportunity to create an Alliance that would unite professional vocalists/songwriters throughout the world and together, strive for regulation, security, mutual support and value.
Our ethos is to provide information that will help protect all copyright and intellectual property rights of any vocalist/songwriters affiliated with the VSA. To work together, to change the integral mindset of the industry. To finally have one voice.
Artists are some of the most driven and courageous people on the face of the earth.
They deal with more day to day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, artists face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get ‘real’ jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day they have to ignore the possibility that the vision to which they have dedicated their lives is a pipedream. With every passing year, many of them watch as other people their age; achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. But they stay true to their dream, in spite of the sacrifices. Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Artists are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.” – David Acker
