Question Asked by: Posted on Response

How does Music Business works? What is important to know in the music business? Is it better to go indie or to sign with the label these days? Thank you

If I wrote songs with someone and then parted ways and the songs are copyrighted, should I have to sign a release form If he asks? He hired a bunch of musicians to play on the songs and paid them a fee. Since I am the co-writer, is there any reason I would want to sign a 'release form' if he asks me to? Hope that makes sense

Clifford Hritz Tuesday 04 Dec 2007 No. You retain your copyright no matter what he does with the song. If he paid for the recording, he owns the recording and not the song

How does one evaluate a good producer and what variables should a singer look for in a producer and weed out fakes and so called wanna be producers? How does one know if a producer is legit or not?

DEAR SIRS, I WAS A WRITER/KEYBOARDIST FOR A BAND SIGNED WITH A LARGE LABEL A FEW YEARS AGO. I WAS PAID MY WRITERS ROYALTIES IN A TIMELY AND ACCURATE MANNER.IN 2005, THE SAME ALBUM WAS RE-RELEASED BY ANOTHER COMPANY WHO LICENSED THE RIGHTS TO REDISTRIBUTE FROM UNIVERSAL MUSIC. I JUST DISCOVERED THE RE-RELEASE. I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY WRITERS ROYALTIES FROM EITHER COMPANY. WHO SHOULD I PURSUE FOR MY ROYALTIES: THE FIRST LABEL OR THE COMPANY WHO LICENSED IT FROM THEM. YOUR KNOWLEDGE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. WARMEST REGARDS, TIM SHARPTON

My question is what advice would you give this 46 year old man as far as getting signed to a major label. How much "Age" is the factor in this regard for any one interested in this business. Thank You Sirs .... Steven Patrick

StevenPatrick Sunday 26 Aug 2007 Age matters less now than for decades. The over thirty market is bigger than ever because we are the main buyers of music as the younger fans download a lot of free music. Get a demo of 3 songs then try to get a manager. He/she would know the industry best and have the right contacts. If you want more details about recording a demo, then please contact me on steven.a.williams@thechapelstudios.co.uk

I have noticed that almost every singing entertainer in the business writes their own songs or is with someone who writes original songs. How do I make a cd for example as a tribute to Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard or just an assortment of great established songs that were not written by me? How do I do that without getting into copyright problems? Thanks. Joe

Joe Wednesday 23 May 2007 I believe you can make the CD with no copyright problems. As long as you don't use any parts of the original recording. I am not a lawyer so my advice is not guaranteed. Ask a lawyer to be sure.

I have an Audio engineering questions. I would like to your opinions on using "doubles" on a track; can they be used througout the entire song, or only parts of the song? Is there a 'general rule of thumb' as to where they should be used and when they are the most effective? Also, what is your advice when it comes to harmonies. What is the "technique" used in audio engineering to make them sound 'tighter' so they don't sound like a background vocal?

Mark Healey May 20th 2007 Use it where it sounds good. It really is as simple as that. No technique. It's all about the accuracy of the singers.

WHICH COMES FIRST ON THE MIX DOWN: REVERB, COMPRESSION, EQ, DELAY?

How does one make an earned living as a lyricist? Also, how can someone get their songs published?

Jimmie Lee May 20th 2007 Speak to a publisher. They control publishing of lyricists and could help you.

How do i find a good manager/agent?

Jason 2007-04-16 I presume by good you mean dedicated. Look on the back of artistes cds that are similar to your music and contact those managers. At least you have a chance of them liking your music as well as their contacts and techniques should suit you.

how do I send my Demo to a label company?and how do you know wich one is reliable?

Nathalie-joan Limon 2007-03-25 It is always best to know the person (even 3rd party) you are sending the demo to. Otherwise a manger/publisher could do it for you as they may know them. No way of knowing they are reliable I'm afraid.

What advice do you have for singers, who want to improve there voice in singing?

Darleen 2006-12-17 Get lessons.

I want to start a home recording studio.Kindly guide as to what is the cheapest or free way to do so.

Sanjeev Ghotgalkar 2006-12-05 Start by buying a computer and sequencing software. Learn how to use it then see where that takes you as there are many routes, not all suited to you.
