Everything can range from six months to seven years. A typical approach to the term is to opt for a relatively long duration, for example. B 12 months, and leave the notion indeterminate from this period with a period of three months. On the other hand, since an artist`s early career is a period that requires the most attention, some managers feel safer with longer time and effort. While the original directors are not too picky when it comes to working with artists, they should be diligent and professional in choosing their first artist they work with. First of all, managers should believe in the artist`s craftsmanship, as this is the most important basis for success. Because if you don`t believe in what the artist does, how can we manage it effectively? Good chemistry is also important, which is why it`s best to know more about the person before signing a formal agreement that will make your relationship official. Hi, Jamie, I had an interesting question. I have a label with two music publishers. Recently, a music agent met with our label as an executive partner.

Look to see what kind of contract together. I think it`s a bit like an artist`s contract. Unless it`s for a label. What incentives can I put into the treaty? And the real question is how long. It had to be thought that the basic 12 months would then automatically renew the contract with more recent responsibilities and higher incentives. If we achieve specific goals. I have a good idea. I`m not sure what else I think. He said we needed to restructure the contract. And absolutely agree.

(i) The Commission on Live Performance – some executives are still trying to get their commission on gross revenues from live concerts, including concerts and tours. It must be opposed, if possible, because even if the cost of live performance can be quite high, the cost, especially for a new artist, can be even higher and many towers make a loss. If the manager calculates his commission on gross income, the artist might not just make a loss on the gig or tour, but then, to offend the injury, he is obliged to pay a commission to a manager on funds he does not have. Most managers are driven to levy their commission only on net income, and this is what is written in the draft contract. Sometimes managers want a higher percentage (usually 25%) Net revenue, and although this should be refused, it is generally better than payment on gross receipts. The industry standard for a manager who needs to be compensated for his or her efforts is 15% – 20% of clients` salary. These include the sale of albums, the promotion of labels and revenue from the revenues they have negotiated. Some do not take anything from the sale of merchandise and the cost of writing songs, but this can be negotiated.
