Sonos Is Pledging $1.5 Million Towards Artist Advocacy
Last week Sonos CEO, Patrick Spence, debuted an arm of the company’s philanthropy effort. $1.5 million will be devoted to the Listen Better campaign, dedicated to activism and advocacy with music at the core. The objective is to allow for more artists to freely express themselves and share their music. Other objectives involve combatting music censorship, upholding and enforcing digital rights, improving access to information, and bolstering music education. Several artists, such as Aesop Rock and R.E.M have offered services as advisors to the effort and it will be exciting to see the impact the initiative has across the world.
