Bio

Casey Rae is Director, Music Licensing at SiriusXM satellite radio, a service with more than 30 million listeners in the United States. He is responsible for the direct licensing of repertoire for transmission across 150 channels, overseeing metadata, royalties and performance. He is also a musician, recording engineer and author.

Casey regularly speaks on issues such as emerging creative sector business models and technology policy at worldwide conferences, government, universities, and in the media. He has testified before Congress on copyright and has written hundreds of articles on the impact of technology on the creative community in scholarly journals and other publications. Casey is an in-demand commentator in media outlets such as NPR, Washington Post, New York Times, Politico, Billboard, L.A. Times, CNBC and more. Casey is faculty at Georgetown University and Berklee College of Music and serves as board President for the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture. In his “spare time,” he runs the DC-based label Lux Eterna Records.
