My band is in negotiations for a physical distribution and promotion deal with a regional company right now. We're doing due diligence and have researched the company a bit. We haven't been given the full terms, but plan on having an IP or entertainment attorney review and revise the terms before signing anything. The company has presented themselves to us as an incubator, raising the stock of the band to get attention of bigger players. Most of what they're offering, we can and have done on our own on a smaller scale, but their assistance will allow us to scale up faster at the cost of less promotional control. Does anyone here with experience with this type of deal have any input as far as the benefits and drawbacks? I know it's a fairly vague question but I don't want to disclose too much while negotiations are in process.
