Code of Ethics

Mission Statement:  CMG Music Recording in Hollywood, CA (CMG) recognizes, organizes, and legitimizes all recording projects and live events in the greater Los Angeles area which are currently without contract. CMG  provides viable means for producers, composers, and musicians to record and perform live music here in the Los Angeles area.  Flexible hourly rates and negotiable prepayment of rights are available on a per project basis.   We are committed to ethical business practices and to being the solution to keep work here in LA.

Commitment to excellence:  CMG Music Recording’s roster of colleagues available for music contracting in Los Angeles are seasoned instrumentalists and vocalists, composers, conductors, producers, directors, sound engineers, studio owners, orchestrators, copyists, etc. by invitation only.  We ensure quality control by maintaining a private online database with a tight-knit group of highly qualified professionals.  CMG is able to book both union and non-union projects so there is no need to look elsewhere. 

A streamlined contract:   CMG utilizes an innovative proprietary 3-page contract that can be customized to fit any type of project.  This simplifies the booking process for our clients, leaving more time and energy for the creative process.  Further, on recording sessions, our contract includes a clause for negotiable prepayment of rights, translating into no back-end payments.  This gives full ownership of the recorded music to the client to use on future projects while also compensating the musicians accordingly.  

Customer (and musician) service:  CMG Music Recording is a full-service concierge contracting company.  We pride ourselves on going above and beyond our client’s expectations.  Our contractors often take on many other responsibilities on behalf of the client to ensure a smooth, stress-free experience.  Additionally, CMG has created a safe “family” atmosphere for our colleagues.  We work hard to build relationships within the music community and strive to make each project with CMG fun and rewarding.  Our colleagues often come early and stay late as they enjoy this atmosphere and their fellow colleagues.  

Commitment to growth:  CMG works hard to bring work to our music community.  Our dedicated team is focused on bringing more and more projects to CMG Music Recording.  This keeps our colleagues working and also provides work opportunities for the excellent recording studios and venues in LA.  As a result, these colleagues then refer other gifted colleagues and we continue to grow.
