This section mentiones the most widely used and current contracts in the music industry. We will customize each musiccontract for your own specific needs. Whether you are a label, a producer, a DJ or a new music startup, we've got you covered! Contact us if you need one of these contracts.

A written contract should reflect the parties actual agreement about important topics such as royalties, copyrights, recording costs, duration, remixes, performance rights, jurisdiction, licensing, applicable law, premature termination and rights to use artist name.
