Hey Tami, I hope that d lord will continue to bless u. U r doing an excellent job in educating persons. However I am a mother of a very talented artist and I am using the internet to educated myself about the industry so that I can guide and assist him in decision making.
My son got beats from Utube and he did the mixing & mastering as well as recording, he also has a lot of songs on utube and other social sites; and receiving a lot of attention got requests to put his songs out on Itune, spottify ,ect . Should he copyright his lyrics alone and sign up with a publishing company instead of trying to copyright the song?
And how much is your fee to assist with copy writing and would we connect via skype to have that process done?
Thanks Mrs. Joseph! He should definitely set up his own publishing company with your local business office and make sure that he is getting paid for his plays on Youtube and Spotify.
Please book a one on one consultation so I can help walk you through this tamilatrell.com/us/shop.
yep its your money for your music so why not?? just make sure you pay Uncle Sam! LOL!!
hello I'm a producer/ artist and was wondering if i produce a beat and wrote the whole song, but need a singer for the hook. should they get a percentage for singing the hook even tho i wrote it? or should i pay them an upfront fee and they don't get any of the backend? thanks
no - didnt you just ask me this question? lol
Hey Tami, got a tough one for ya!
I just recorded an original demo- I wrote the chorus/hook and produced the full instrumental. (I left the verses and bridge open for the the artist to write) I'd like to send it to the producer who's working with the said artist in hopes of getting it placed. I definitely will copyright the song before I send it over...but the question is this:
If they do decide to record and finish the song, what's the next step in the process business wise; like what should I expect so I can be prepared?
(Note that the artist is signed to a label and I have no personal relationship with the producer)
Thanks so much!
the next step after they write and record is to do split sheets - depending on what they are trying to do determines whats next. for more details or questions, book me for a consultation and I will be happy to walk you through it. tamilatrell.com/us/shop
hello, i am an artist/ producer. I wanted to know if i make a beat as well as write all the lyrics (including hook and verses) but i have a singer come in and sing the hook. should they get a portion of back end publishers or writers share? or should i do something like a 1 time upfront payment with them like a work for hire? I do want to be fair. What is your take on this? And thanks for your time
one time payment and work for hire. they are not entitled to pub unless you want to give it to them.
sure! just keep following me online for more great content!
