Hi Everyone, I've just formed a new band with two musicians I've been in prior bands with and a singer/songwriter. Having been in a serious band where we agreed royalty, touring and other revenue streams before I'm really aware that as difficult as the conversation can be, this is something we need to do in this band. My question is, as the singer comes in (So far) with a very simple chord progression that we tend to change about, arrange etc and lyrics and a melody would it be fair to suggest a split of 25% each for musical composition and 100% to him for the lyrics (I seem to remember that lyrics are administered differently to music). We're all contributing to the costs of running a band such as rehearsals and recording (plus I'm paying through the nose driving). The individual instruments have completely changed the feel and in some cases harmony of the songs.
