So, You Want A Publishing Deal?

Publishing deals are an agreement between a music publisher and an artist or songwriter. The artist writes a song and the publisher markets it to make money for both. Managing to grab a publishing deal can make your career and is considered one of the big milestones for any aspiring songwriter or artist. That said, publishing deals can be difficult to navigate alone and, with plenty of dodgy companies out there, you need to ensure you’ve picked the right one.

Our resident music business expert, Bob James, will show you everything you need to know about what publishing deals are, how to get a music publishing deal, and how to ensure you get the royalties you’re entitled to.
