Vague title I know, but this is a competely new thing for me and I'm "dragging" my drummer into it too. Synopsis: A while ago we did some gigs with this producer guy who also sings and plays many instruments - he really liked us as a rhythm section. He said he has things coming up that he wants us to be a part of. So a couple months pass and he wins an Emmy for some song in a t.v. documentary. He came over last night for a little chat. He's got a bunch of singers that want or need a real "band". He says that if it's the singers song that we probably won't get writing credits, but we would be able to get points and even royalties. (we live about 5 minutes apart, he's got a nice vocal booth and tons of gear, and we're just finishing off our studio) We're also going to do stuff just as a trio I guess (live and studio), where we would get writing credits and whatever else might happen. He also wants us to do some tracks for movies and or t.v. (He had a song on that lame show called "Hawaii" that got cancelled in like 2 weeks - he was pissed, haha) But does any of this sound right? I/we basically don't want to get screwed on the collaboration stuff and or ripped off of our original material. As you can tell I don't know anything about this - can anybody shed some light on this? I'm thinking some sort of legal agreement might be in order? Are there some good texts about this stuff I need to read? We're stoked for this new opportunity but are going in very cautiously.
