"He gets artist signed"
Platinum West offers what is
called an EQUITY
This is becoming very common especially with major labels.
The Artist contributes a small amount to administrative costs and splits
the profits 50/50 with the label. "Most major label acts are only entitled
to a small share of profits 12- 15 percent of the wholesale price on album
sales and about 3 points lower on single sales."
In most major label situations the artist must sell 250k to 400K units to
receive a penny.
An independent artist who sells a single download track can make as much or
more than a major label artist who sells a full album.
