Meet the MPA

The Music Publishers Association (MPA) represents the full diversity of the UK’s music publishing sector. We act on behalf of 280 businesses that invest in, license works and support the livelihoods of songwriters, composers and lyricists – ranging from the UK’s largest and most established music publishers to independents and start-ups across all genres. These companies are the engine room of British music – they support our music makers – and drive an extraordinary cultural and economic success story.
