Artist Management Agreements

It`s pretty wide. It is therefore important that the artist and the manager are on the same side on the role of the manager, but also on their collective goals and expectations. Other related questions are whether the funds generated by the artist are paid directly to the artist or manager, what the manager is entitled to after the end of the contract, and details of the director`s obligations to report the figures (revenues and expenses) to the artist and to pay the artist. The fact is that a verbal agreement to help an artist in exchange for 10% can give rise to arguments, an accelerated end of the relationship and/or to fear that the other person will one day take legal action when it comes to a lot of money. 4. Sunset Clauses: The “Sunset” clause is so named because it provides that the manager continues to collect a commission on the artist`s income, even after the expiry of the life. The reason a manager wants this clause is that he wants to focus on something about his investment in the artist`s career – sometimes it takes years for an artist to “break” but they “break” because of the manager`s hard work in the early years (or, that`s the argument, anyway). Generally speaking, during sunset, the volume of activities ordered will be more limited than the duration of sunset, and the commission rate will decrease slightly less over the years. If you don`t know the artist or manager well, you can opt for a short-term contract first. This allows you to have a better idea of the other person and see if you fit well professionally.

B 1 year, with an option of 3-4 years based on certain thresholds. There are a few clauses (sections) of the management agreement that can be designed (written) to be beneficial to the artist or beneficial to the manager. Ideally, the artist and manager fully understand how each element of the agreement could be structured to make the agreement reasonable. Many managers actively stick to an approach known as the “meeting phase,” a time when artists and managers agree to work together informally. This time is used to establish the relationship; to test whether both parties can get away with it and whether they are serious and professional in their work. The period covered by the agreement is called duration. The duration may be valid for a number of years. There may also be extensions that may be automatic, unless one party notifies the other party, at some point, that the concept should not be extended or possibly on the basis of certain thresholds.

A threshold can be a certain level of income. For example, a term may be one year and one year or a second year if the artist has reached a certain level of income in the first year.
