“Negotiating A Music Producer Agreement: 7 Key Issues”

17 Aug

Basic RGB

“Whether you’re a music producer, or a performing artist working with a producer, it’s important to discuss the terms of your arrangement with each other.

While it’s better late than never to formalize the artist-producer relationship, it’s easier to start the conversation before heading into the studio, and much easier before the music generates interest and money.

What does a producer do? They generally oversee the production of the song, record the artist’s performance and produce artistically, commercially, and technically viable masters.

On one end of the spectrum of formalizing the relationship is not talking about the relationship. On the other side is a producer agreement negotiated by a music lawyer for both the producer and artist. Many people land somewhere in between. The reasons why relying on a music agreement you found online are problematic could fit an entire other blog!

One purpose of this blog is to touch on some of the relevant issues when negotiating a producer agreement.”

Please Help Zion I After Armed Robbery

31 Jul

Zion I is calling on his fans for help. Monday, July 10th, Zion I was shooting a music video for a new song. Four hours into the shoot, he was robbed at gunpoint and the camera was stolen. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Zion I’s last album was inspired by his own personal losses as well as the current political and social climate of the world-at-large. His reason for filming in the heart of West Oakland and the storyline of the video, written by director David Telles, make it all the more ironic that he ended up being victimized.

There is a deductible to pay to get the camera covered by insurance, but the money spent on the video has to be raised to re-film. As an independent artist, Zion I is funding this alone. There is no record label financing this, which is why he is reaching out to you.

Please help him raise the money to get the camera back and the ability to reshoot the video and see your name as an funder in the credits!
