Castle and Mitchell Answer 20 Questions for New Artists


Music • Technology • Policy has posted excerpts from Chris Castle and Amy Mitchell’s ongoing article series “20 Questions for New Artists”, this particular excerpt addressing management agreements, covering such topics as commission rates and bases and “sunset” clauses.

Various iterations of the article can be found around the web, including this PDF version [link removed – see link in update], which covers topics ranging from tax returns and publishing companies to marital status and trade-marks. Castle and Mitchell write from a US perspective, but the general advice is well worth heeding regardless of location.

UPDATE: Mr. Castle notes that the complete “20 Questions for New Artists” article is also available in an omnibus edition packaged with a couple of other interesting music-related articles penned by Mr. Castle.
