Statement on the Irish Music Industry

(For the full statement go to www.myspace.com/niallodriscoll)

It is time the new Minister and Government showed the respect due to the thousands of workers and artists in the Irish Music Industry by:

1. Establishing and funding a proper and permanent Irish Music Board in the same vein as Bord Scannan na hEireann
2. Creating a specific tax incentive to leverage foreign investment into all levels of the industry
3. Develop an industry cluster (possibly in the area of The Digital Hub where suppliers of content such as music, videos etc may be of benefit)
4. Ensure the industry has ongoing monitoring of its trends and figures, which can be done through The Irish Music Board and other already established organisations such as I.M.R.O., M.C.P.S. etc.
5. Develop audiences for Irish contemporary and popular music, as in the Sweedish model (noted in the full statement), through an Irish Music Board
6. Establish proper representation abroad to promote new Irish music and attract investors
7. Act on the recommendations of the last commissioned reports on the industry

I call on the new government and specifically the new Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, Sйamus Brennan, to respond urgently and comprehensively to this statement with a set of real initiatives, financing and deadlines for implementation of these initiatives. The time has come to stop paying lip service and show the respect due to those thousands of young, talented, educated artists and music industry entrepreneurs that currently struggle unnecessarily. It is time to act on their behalf for the financial and cultural benefit of the nation.
