FREE CONTRACT ADVICE
I have set up a FREE advice email for any bands out there that have been sent a written contract too sign by a label, booking agent, marketing firm, label scout, manager - whatever. I’m begging all bands to NEVER just sign without first getting some real advice and understanding of what it is you are agreeing too. I started Sargent House as a manager and in that time I have seen some of the most heartbreaking situations of bands who just went and signed the most crooked deals and had to sit helplessly with them asking for me to get them out of what I couldn’t because they had signed. I just can’t stand by and watch anymore. I’m NOT a laywer nor will I offer any Legal advice but I will use my experience and knowledge with contracts to help you understand what is being asked of you in the contract. Too many times the reason bands don’t get outside advice has been for lack of funds to get a professional lawyer to advise them before signing and so I’m offering this FREE. Take it or leave it, you don’t have to listen to me but at least you can be more prepared to know what you are getting yourself into and with who.
I am also happy to recommend good attorneys for deals that really are legit. Remember this is your LIFE, and being “signed” means nothing if it is with a place or person or company that now owns all your creative output for now and the future because you signed on the dotted line.
The devil comes in all shapes, sizes and colors… if it sounds to good to be true. It is.
