I would like to know what kind of agreements you all might be working out with artists/bands that you want to develop and pitch.
How much cash upfront? per song? by the hour? None?
How much on the back end? points and publishing? % of signing advance?
How long is the agreement in effect?
Do you expect them to pay for studio time?
How does all this change (or not) if its an artist/band that you really like and believe in?
