Our manager has been the main investor in our band. She paid for our indy recording, has paid for most touring expenses, etc. She is not a performing member of the band (lead singers mom.) Any money from paid gigs has primarily gone to her to help repay towards the debt. Her plan is that any money made from merch, CD sales, songwriting, etc, should go to her. She wants to have an agreement drawn up to make us all equal members of the band. I appreciate that she believes in the band and has invested personally, and she should be compensated over time if the band is successful. However I have a real problem with her having artistic input, wanting a portion of any songwriting (her son is a very good songwriter) which would included any songs that I have written. Does anyone else have this type of arrangement?
