Do I Sign Solo Artist, Band, or Both?
What about changing the agreement? It's more common to sign a management contract based on years (or financial goals), not on number of albums. (It sounds like you are crossing a record contract with a management agreement.) After all, what happens if the artist doesn't have (or keep) a label deal? Does that mean the management agreement ends? In any case, you're free to make any changes you wish to the agreement but we would suggest that when modifying the standard agreement, always review the instructions that accompany the agreement. Also, beware that in some cases, managers may need to be licensed in California.
