How Production Costs Are Affecting Songwriters
Making a career out of songwriting isn’t easy, and even if you do end up writing the next chart topping hit, there’s no guarantee that you’ll see much of a profit for you efforts, assuming you can afford the production costs in the first place.
In this fresh piece off of MusicThinkTank, Mylène Besançon takes a look at how production costs are negatively affecting songwriters.
“… the struggles of songwriters go deeper than proper remuneration for recorded songs. Many songwriters struggle to even get past the recording stage due to the high cost of professional music production. Depending on who you ask, the cost for recording a high quality demo or radio-ready song could range from $500 to over $5,000.”
