Don’t have time for a workshop or consultation? We frequently release new nuggets of information musicians can absorb.
- The Split Sheet: How to Protect Your Intellectual PropertyA split sheet is the document that determines who gets paid at what percentage. The law defaults to an even split so it’s really important that musicians get this done early to protect themselves.
- When You Should Betray Your Brand, and How to Do ItMany artists are familiar with the concept of branding and yet, only few implement and apply brand strategies. In this article, our lead media specialist dives deep into The 1975’s branding throughout the course of their career to help indie bands craft their own journey.
