At some point in your career as a musician  you will have to sign a peace of paper that will allow your business to go further.  It's a good idea to have a lawyer or someone who can decipher what you'll be signing.  One thing that I've found in reading my own agreements is that what people say in person or on the phone may be completely different than what is written down.  Always read what you're about to sign and do not settle for less than what you want.
