Recording session consent form

The BPI/MU Session consent form is an essential tool for any musician who is involved in recording for a record label or artist.

There are many musicians who may have played on a recording some time in the past who are now having great difficulty in proving that they were a part of the session when they try to claim back any royalties they are subsequently owed. This is especially prescient in the current cultural climate, where a long-forgotten song can be wrenched out of oblivion to appear on a movie soundtrack, or in part as a sample on a successful contemporary song.

Read this article which appeared in ‘The Musician’ and find out why it is essential to sign a recording consent form.

If you have any queries about the MU’s session recording consent form, please contact Peter Thoms, MU Sessions Official at pete.thoms@theMU.org
