The Barter System
Once I got a call about performing at a winery for a local event. During the booking they mentioned that they couldn’t pay me monetarily, but they could pay me in wine. I love wine, so I think, “OK, I’ll be getting at least a case”.
If you’re like me, part of being a musician means I’m not the best at math (I know that doesn’t hold true for all you math rockers out there!). The first year I quit my job, and when out on my own freelancing was terrifying. Making ends meet, budgeting, paying the bill. It adds up to quite a bit of calculation.
So you got a message on myspace from a licensing company saying your song is perfect for The Hills and they want to place it this week. All you need to do is send a check for $400 and sign this contract
