Composing music is an art that is the backbone of every song. Composers should be developed in the same way as recording artists since without music, it is not a song. Being known and relevant in the industry is key. Image is everything and having a knowledgeable and strong team behind you is key.
However, in most cases the focus is usually on the recording artist and there is little attention on the composer of the beat even though the beat some times makes the song. In some genres in the music industry that are not getting mainstream exposure, it is extremely difficult to earn a living as a music composer. Many do not know their rights nor understand the business and some even lose their intellectual property rights due to the lack of knowledge.
It is great when a producer or record label is interested in producing a song on a composer’s instrumental however, it is highly important that an understanding in writing is developed between all parties.
If a composer decides to produce one of his tracks, it is equally important that he/she has an recording agreement in place with the recording artist prior to the session.
