    Hi Robert

    Do you have a professional body for musicians in the US? Here in the UK we have a couple of organisations (Musicians Union) and the (Incorporated Society for Musicians) that musicians can join. If you are a member you can access lots of advice and also legal document templates, contracts etc. Would this be possible for you in the States? Do you have an equivalent organisation that you could maybe join?

    Also, the "Music Managers Forum" publish an excellent book called "The Music Management Bible" which covers lots of details regarding contracts, record deals, publishing deals etc. It really is excellent. Might be worth a look.

    Hope that helps
