    Episode 49 – Music Lawyers: Who Needs Them?

    If Your Only Thought Regarding Lawyers & Music Is That They Deal With All The Bad Things In The Music Business...Think Again!











    It's often said that musicians are pigeon holed by professionals. A range of stereotypes come to mind regarding laziness, unpredictability and flakiness. The thing is, it's true both ways. Many musicians feel anyone connected with business and legal matters are not to be trusted. If you're a musician, you need to listen to this interview with a practicing music lawyer. If you do have the former opinion, the following podcast will hopefully help change your mind.















    Jonathan Tait (or as he prefers to be called "Jonny") is one of Scotland's foremost creative industry lawyers. Jonny has built up a wealth of knowledge, experience through worked on some of Scotland's largest creative projects. In this interview he discusses the role of a music and creative industry lawyer and the work that they undertake.
