After years of preaching this I still have to urge clients NOT to get involved in a music project without signing some form of agreement
Seeing contracts offered to U.K. artists from the U.S. Needs be certain provisions added before signing and an understanding of U.S. law.
Seeing Artists offered 360 deals from producers. This is good but must reflect what producer can do,not just done to tie the Artist to them.
