 “Career Insurance for Songwriters. Everything songwriters, composers, and music publishers need to know about making a living in the Digital Age.” ASCAP (AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COMPOSERS, AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS)

 



“How Not to Get Screwed By the Music Industry. You must not live without this book.” VIBE MAGAZINE

About the Author

Todd Brabec,as Executive Vice President and Worldwide Director of Membership for ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers - the world's largest music licensing organization) for well over 3 decades, was in charge of all ASCAP Membership operations throughout the world, all writer and publisher payment formula recommendations, changes and implementation, all advances, loans and other member financial arrangements and was responsible for signing most of ASCAP's successful songwriters and writer/artists including James Taylor, Marvin Gaye, Metallica, Green Day, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Journey, the Jimi Hendrix catalogue, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bob McDill, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty as well as the blockbuster film and television composers James Horner (“Avatar”, “Titanic” - the 2 top grossing films of all time), Hans Zimmer ( “Pirates of the Caribbean” films), James Newton Howard (“Dark Knight”), Michael Giacchino (“Up”, “Medal of Honor” video games) and Randy Newman ("Toy Story" films), among many others.

Through his leadership, direction and efforts over 37 years, ASCAP grew from 60 million dollars to 1 billion dollars in annual revenues, from 30,000 members to 350,000 writers and publishers and from a lowly 20% overall market share to market share dominance in radio, television, feature films and all other major media. In addition, he was able during his long career, to eliminate all ASCAP payment policies, provisions, formulas and rules which were not in the best interests of songwriters and composers as well significantly increasing the payments for film and television score and theme songs.

I have used this book front to back. It's totally thorough and outlines the different necessary terms and actions one needs to take as a musician. However, it's also very legal heavy in words. I recommend using a dictionary to keep yourself in check and understanding the text. Take notes! It's a musician's go-to guide!

As an executive in the music business and professional composer and songwriter, this is by far the best book on the music business. I have read them all. The kindle search is invaluable and the paperback index is exceptionally well written so you can jump to exactly what you need at the moment without having to read through the entire book or chapter. Whoever said this is just a book about jobs in the music business has obviously not read the book. It covers every aspect of where royalties are generated from, how to collect them, performance rights information, copyright info, links to many useful organizations, great chapter on publishing, mechanical rates, deals, contracts and so much more I can't list it all. This is an excellent resource for film and television composers and songwriters and I highly recommend it!

This book sheds a lot of light on a very, very obscure world. It's a one stop shop and must read for anyone in the music industry.
