Making a Recording Agreement
Whether you're a fledgling act, an experienced recording artist, or a record label looking for both, a Recording Agreement ensures that music is the only noise your partnership makes.
Use the Recording Agreement document if:
As a group or solo act, you give a company exclusive rights to record, promote, license, and sell your music, and the Recording Agreement ensures your rights are protected in return. You can use it to outline your expectations and detail the type of exposure and resources you want to be dedicated to your music. You can also specify terms of payment so that you're compensated fairly.
If you're a record label, you can use the Recording Agreement to get your obligations to clients in black and white. You can ensure that their expectations are met and that there are no disagreements when it comes to your cut of the artists' earnings.
If you have legal needs outside of the Recording Agreement, please check out our complete list of service contracts.
