Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville

As musicians and entrepreneurs, sometimes we need legal help with contracts and agreements. I've had an incredible experience lately working with the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville. I was recently referred to them when I needed some guidance in forming a basic terms of use for The Songbird Project website.

Basically, for non-profit organizations and lower-income artists the Arts & Business Council offers legal consultations, and, if necessary, will refer you out to work with an outside law professional pro bono or on a sliding scale.

This means that if you're a songwriter who is about to sign your first deal with a publisher, you can probably avoid paying around $1,000 directly to a lawyer for their review. Through the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville you could get the same quality legal advice and service without paying an arm and a leg.

Check out their website here.

Keep writing,
