Artist Development Agreement
Is there a success story about these artists established on a demonstration agreement? In other cases, publishers may even fund an entire album of the author`s performance and attempt to sell or license the album either to an independent label or to a major label. The value of this approach, even if it is more expensive due to the fact that an entire album is produced with a work of art and perhaps a video, is that the publisher makes available to the record company a finished product ready for publication. This is often an easier sale. From time to time, the record company will add a few new tracks to the album or further improve the already completed master recordings or repeat some aspects of the production. The producer`s agreement, when drafted by the label, can only grant the producer a royalty for record sales. This should be resisted, as the producer pleads for payment for all other secondary uses. A sought-after producer should be able to secure a share of everything the artist receives. For example, if an artist receives £15,000 for a sync fee for a car commercial, the producer (in the illustrations above) is entitled to 0.24 (4/17) x £15,000 = £3600. Chanel exciting. If I were to put down what you should expect in the agreement, it would take all day to write, and I would probably be wrong. So why not send it to me once it has arrived and we can have a call? Good luck! One of the main advantages of the production company agreement for the producer is that more than one artist can conclude a production contract with the same company. However, the artist is bound by an exclusive contract and takes a big risk on the reputation and talents of a producer.
