They could be involved in rock, pop, jazz, folk, country and western, world music. Popular musicians who perform material live can work as part of a duo, in small groups, or as soloists. It is common to hire the services of an agent, or manager, to find work and negotiate recording contracts. Popular musicians work long and irregular hours, commonly working evenings and weekends. Time is often spent learning music, in rehearsals, or looking for new work. Recording in studios frequently takes many hours and can run until late at night. Popular musicians perform in a wide range of places, from arts centers, restaurants, theatres and music venues, to hotels, pubs, and clubs, and some large concerts and festivals are held outdoors in parks, arenas or stately homes. Pubs and clubs can be hot and smoky. Rehearsal rooms are often small and draughty. Recording studios are usually air-conditioned. Musicians can spend considerable time traveling both around the UK and abroad, and can be away from home for long periods. Musicians usually need their own transport, and if in a group, might have a van and road crew. Musicians are frequently self-employed and can often experience gaps between work. Annual income varies according to the success and experience of the musician. ...read more.

Record companies are responsible for signing, recording and promoting artists and bands. They have many organisations stringed together in vast network empires. Many major labels today prefer to do everything �their way�. This means owning all the companies necessary to put out a successful record; cut it, promote it, distribute it, sell it and maybe even review it. Artists and bands usually get a measly proportion of their CD sales as the record company will take a large cut for itself. This has long been debated between those on the record and those selling it. Music Publishers The business of music publishing is concerned with developing, protecting and valuing music. Music Publications Association. Source: mponline.org.uk A publisher may offer you or your band a publishing deal if he/she thinks that with a little more development they can secure you a record deal with a label or sell your songs to be recorded by other artists. Music Publishing is the owning of song copyrights. If you write a song, you are automatically considered the legal owner of that creation, and therefore, you are also the publisher. You will eventually have to file your song with the United States Register of Copyrights to protect your rights, but you are legally deemed the owner/publisher as soon as you create the song. You can write and publish hundreds of songs, but from a business standpoint, the value of publishing only becomes meaningful when your songs earn royalties. ...read more.

Conclusion

Being branded as �sell outs� for some bands/artists is one of the worst case scenarios imaginable. Therefore managing a band is a tricky business as the manager needs to understand the financial processes of the industry but also the dignity and sensitivity of their client�s music.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay


** There is some very good factual information about music publishing and the role of the manager. However, much of the information in this essay could be looked up on line. It would be better to look at the role of an artist in the context of media theory such as Richard Dyer's Star Theory and Roland Barthes' theories on the performer.
