My friend/partner-in-crime has had solo releases over the years and is a member of PRS. He's registered the single tracks and the one (currently) on Soundcloud with both of our names as 50% composer/author. I also have my own solo side-project which may well arouse some interest once the single comes out, so I think I should join PRS myself in case that gets some radioplay as well (in fact, the same DJ played a couple of my tracks from a demo CD I sent him a few years ago).
My only foray into this kind of thing was about 20 years ago when a band I was in released a cassette. We signed up to PPL and later got a cheque (not much, but it was welcome!). I find the whole PRS/MCPS/PPL thing very confusing - can anybody offer any advice? I've had a bit of a read on the PRS website and I think I can join for £50 - is that right?
Any advice at all will be very welcome!
