Artists Forward
At Sony Music we are prioritizing the wellbeing of our roster,
enhancing opportunities for our earnings participants,
making it faster and easier than ever to access available funds,
and offering actionable data and insights to inform decision making
in a dynamic, demanding market.
We call this our

It’s a first-of-its-kind strategic effort to ensure we are providing comprehensive support to our talent in all aspects of their careers.

Free Counseling Services
It’s okay not to be okay.
That’s why Sony Music artists around the world have access to free, confidential counseling services in over 70 languages.
We offer the ability to connect with a licensed therapist as part of our Artist Assistance Program, which provides wellbeing resources to on-roster Sony Music artists globally.
