We will start with traditional record label deals, and progress forward to talking about more modern deals. We will talk a lot about the “need” for a record deal in the modern age, and how you can get by without one at all. I’ll walk you through every issue in the contract so you fully understand what is being asked.
The goal of this class is for you to understand what is in-between the lines of the contract.
