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

Angie 16th July 2008 I would say to start as an indie artist and build your fan base, once you are making moves and booking large shows the major labels will contact 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 Never sign a release for any of your work... that is why the co-writer part if there...

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?

Laurie Walls Thursday 29 Nov 2007 Listen to the work they have done, make sure you have a good fit with them, you will spend hours in the studio, today producers are just musician that focus on one area of music, so watch out for that. I hope that helps

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

TIM SHARPTON Thursday 22 Nov 2007 WOW, get a Lawyer ASAP, I think you should be getting paid, hope that helps

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 You if you have good music and you are sure you want to deal with this crazy market of the Major labels.. go for it, or just look for a deal with an indie label...

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 Ask for permission to sing the songs, and give them credit for all their work, most time you will get what you ask for.

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 Doubles, are used all the time... you can use it to your taste.. if it sounds good it's good... As an engineer, I get the artist to sing it as tight as they can and I go in and edit the tracks to work

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

SHAFIQ SHABAZZ May 20th 2007 Ok, I guess you are talking about on the mix buss? if so that is to taste, I use compression in and out, and the Eq, some where in the middle, verb is some thing that is try and not to use on the mix buss. I hope that helps

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

Jimmie Lee May 20th 2007 WOW, I get questions like this a lot... to make a living you just have to keep working in the business, there is no rules or time frame. If you have some good music send it my way, let me listen to it.

How do i find a good manager/agent?

Jason 2007-04-16 Look for someone that is working with an artist you like and try and work with them... just look for someone that is hard working as well.

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 Sending your demo to a major label can be a waste of time and money, you need to get a name of a person, that way it makes it in

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

Darleen 2006-12-17 Keep singing... record a lot of demos and listen back to hear how good you are getting... Lets chat soon...
