Producer, terms of contract

(1/2) > >>

Seb Riou:
Hey all,
After several yeras of engineering and mixing, I'm starting to take my first producing gigs.

One is a deal with a solo artist, live Piano and vocals recording in a nice concert Hall, kinda "best of" his songs and unreleased material. So in that case, no real creative input but the choice of songs , and performance drive.

The second one is a more inside job, with a  rock singer on the come back after a bad Major experience. Has a bunch of songs, but some heavy work still on the go.

Both projects have a good following (audience and pro) but no  Label contract right now.

How would you deal the terms of contract ? What percentage of record sells ? Would you do it without a record label ? Would you charge the artist for studio time (that would make HIM the producer I guess ?)


I'll do the projects anyway, cos They're both great Artists, and I am what they need right now to make the step up, but every input is welcome

compasspnt:
A normal Producer deal might be between 2 and 4 points (point = 1% of retail price). Often an advance against royalties is given, could be anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000 usually recouped before you would receive further royalties.

Studio time is separate, unless you want to roll things in together as a package.

These days, from Producer perspective as much up front as possible is advisable, as points do not mean what they used to.

just seconding terry's comment.
