Default Article "Inside the dirty business of songwriting"

This came up on another forum. I thought it was an interesting read for any aspiring songwriters

Same as it ever was, pretty much. There's a trickle-down, as well. It's not at all unusual, at least in my town, to get "paid" for performing or engineering on a demo or indie record with a small percentage of the songwriting. I've done this a lot and never made a dime. I've gotten a few free beers out if it, but I've probably bought more.

I'm not surprised either . I have a friend at a publishing house in Nashville and he has worried about it for long time.

Unfortunately Hunter Tompson said it years ago and may well be correct.
"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench - a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs."
