New MU+FAC Joint Guidance for Session Musicians and Featured Artists

Knowing whether you should be engaged as a session musician or as a featured artist can often be obvious, but there are times when your role can be difficult to determine. This can be particularly difficult for lead vocalists going in to work with another artist or producer, but can also apply to an instrumentalist taking on a lead role.

In order to help with this, the Musicians Union (MU) and the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) have created a joint guidance that aims to offer advice to creators. It provides guidelines and template questions for you to ask the engager, in order for you to make an informed decision and understand where it might be necessary to negotiate.
