Musicians Are Being Held Hostage By Record Labels in California – The Fair Act

Did you know that there is a law on the books in California that states a company cannot bind someone to a personal services agreement for longer than 7 calendar years - unless they are a RECORDING ARTIST?! That’s right, in 1987 the slimy, slippery, soulless major record labels successfully lobbied the California legislature to add an amendment to exempt recording artists from this law meant to protect people from long-term, predatory contracts. But finally, California might have a chance to right these historic wrongs with the new Bill AB-2926 (Kalra) that has been introduced.

My guest today is singer-songwriter Kevin Garrett. He is an extremely talented R&B, Neo-soul, and soul songwriter. It was such a treat to speak with him. Famously, he’s Grammy-nominated for writing Beyonce’s track “Pray You Catch Me” from her Lemonade album.

In this episode we discuss his music publishing deal with Roc Nation and his distribution strategies, his music creation process, and remaining independent.

Note: We recorded this call over Zoom, and the technical gods were not in our favor during this interview. If you’re hearing glitches and sentences being cut off, that’s what’s going on. We edited it as best we could so you can understand him, and it’s still an incredible conversation.
