New joint guidance for session musicians and featured artists launched by Musicians’ Union and Featured Artists Coalition
05 Jul 2021
The Musicians’ Union and the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) have created a new piece of joint guidance for session musicians and featured artists.
The joint guidance aims to offer advice to creators, to establish how they should be engaged when working on projects.
This can be particularly difficult for lead vocalists going in to work with another artist or producer, but can also apply to an instrumentalist taking on a lead role.
This is a particularly tricky area of the industry, which often sees confusion around the rights, processes and negotiating position for music makers.
The guidance provides easy to follow advice on what rights are involved and the sorts of questions that musicians and artists might need to ask, in order to understand the role they are playing within a project.
