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

Today’s episode was a live podcast episode for Ari’s Take Academy students with guests Rogét Chahayed and his manager Greg Katz.

He’s worked with some of the biggest names in the business, including Halsey, Travis Scott, Drake, Miguel, G-Eazy, Ke$ha, Calvin Harris, Carly Rae Jepsen, and more.

We got into both the production and business sides. We discussed producer points, splits, songwriter credits, publishing, and how to get a publishing deal. Rogét also gives great advice to aspiring songwriters and producers on how to get started.
