Malcolm Black To Replace Don McGlashan On APRA Board

Malcolm Black joins the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) board as the New Zealand Writer Director, replacing Don McGlashan, who is stepping down.

As a songwriter, Malcolm won a Silver Scroll in 1984 with the Netherworld Dancing Toys for the For Today.

He has since focused on the business side of music as director of A&R at Sony Music NZ, co-manager of Neil Finn and Crowded House and establishing licensing and digital company Les Mills Music.

Additional nominations in the APRA NZ Writer election were received from Jan Hellriegel and Marshall Smith who were not elected to the board.

Expat Jenny Morris has returned as Chair of the APRA Board.
