In your artist contracts with your artist, the main thing to consider is what you are going to commit to do for them. Also, you want to define what you want them to give in return. For example, you may be able to offer a commitment as to how many singles or albums you will release and when. You may also want to explain how much you can spend on recording and promoting their records. Lastly, you define what sort of royalty, which is the percentage of the sales or the profits,  you will pay them.

Also they need to assign you the rights to their recordings and do an agreed amount of promotional work .   The absolute basics of a simple agreement would set out how profits are going to be split between artist and record company. Or you can split them equally between business partners or the members of a band. For example, you could agree to recoup all the money spent on the recording and split any profits after that equally. This will all be learned throughtout the process of how to start an independent label.

You should also advise your artist to take their own independent legal advice on the artist contract . Some music industry professionals would recommend you use a specialist media or entertainment lawyer to draw this up for you but others would agree that you could do this on your own with proper guidance. Learning how to start and run an indpendent label doesn't have to be an impossible feat and learning about contracts doesn't have to be either!
