Anyone ever contribute to a music library/licensing company? I got an email from some guy who wants me to contribute some music to it. It seems to be rather small. It's not listed in the Songwriter's Market book, and from the website it looks like there may be just a couple hundred songs. The website does look nice, and under "clients" there's MTV and Discovery Channel. Doing some googling I found that the guy who emailed me seems to have a few songs in the library. Additionally, there's a female singer/songwriter that he's produced who's also in it. The singer/songwriter gave me her phone number after I emailed her, but I thought I'd see what people here have to say.
He offers a 50/50 split, and a non-exclusive use. I really don't know how to go about this. Anyone get ripped off by something like this? How much money can you expect if someone buys a song/piece? How the heck do you tell if a company is respectable?
