    Vocalist Recording Contract (Artist)


    This Vocalist Recording Contract is written in favor of the artist, as an inducement to get an A-list singer to record tracks for you.

    • This is not an exclusive contract. The vocalist is free to record elsewhere as well.
    • The vocalist agrees not to perform any of the songs being recorded under this contract for any other party.
    • The vocalist is at liberty to choose the material being recorded.
    • The vocalist will be paid a royalty on 90% of all net record sales (after deducting the costs of recording, production, distribution and promotion).

    Top selling singers are worth making a few concessions for. That's the whole point of the Vocalist Recording Contract (Artist).
