Last updated 07/25/2022

Starting the Work

❀ I reserve the right to refuse any commissions that I feel I cannot complete sufficiently, either due to the nature of the work requested or for any other reason(s) unspecified.❀ full payment upfront via Stripe (invoice) is required before I begin work on the project.
50% upfront payment is also available, but usually only approved for larger projects (e.g. Albums & EP's).
By paying partially, you agree to pay the full amount upon completion of the work.
❀ Once work has started, payment is then non-refundable. If you are on a waitlist/queue and payment has not been exchanged, you are free to forfeit your slot at any point before work begins.❀ My average turnaround is anywhere between 3 - 12 days from starting and varies depending on many factors. If your project has a deadline, we can discuss more options and plans via Direct Message through either Discord/Twitter/Etc.
I deliver frequent updates and ensure you receive quality work within a short amount of time.
❀ Communication is vital throughout the process of the work, so please keep me informed of any emergencies that arise, I will do the same if such things happen.❀ When using the work in any content, you must provide credit back to either my Twitter or website somewhere that is reasonably visible.❀ By commissioning me, you understand that you will be receiving digital files only, no physical goods will be delivered to you. You will receive an MP3/Wav. file of the completed work and the files will be provided to you either via email, WeTransfer, Discord, or Twitter❀ I will not be providing source files (e.g. project files) unless it is absolutely necessary (e.g. in the event someone makes a fraudulent copyright claim on any or all the songs). This is just for security & exploitation concerns❀ Music production for cover songs, please contact me for more details.

During the Process, Revisions Policy, etc.:

❀ Once payment has been exchanged and work has begun, I will send over musical "sketches/demos" of the work to you for your approval. After you approve of the general direction of the work, it will then proceed on to the "draft(s)" stage where I begin making fixed changes/adjustments to the work.❀ Only one (1) major revision (e.g. Arrangement/Composition/Genre change) and three (3) minor revisions (e.g. Key/Instrument(s)/Melodies) are included in the price, any further desired revisions will be at a rate of $50.00 USD each.❀ Any major revisions requested after the "demo/sketch" stage is approved will incur an additional charge of $100.00 USD as it is quite difficult and at times strenuous to change the structure of a near-completed song - please make sure that you're happy with the general direction of the work when I send over song sketches/demos.❀ If for any reason I’ve started but cannot complete the work within the agreed-upon timeframe and additional time cannot be granted, you will be refunded the full amount you originally paid using the same method of payment within 10-14 days.❀ If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the finished work, please get in touch with me and we can discuss it further. I want to make sure you have something you’re happy with.

Allowed Usage/Copyright Information:

❀ Please DO NOT use any work-in-progress or audio previews from me before your work is completed. These are underdeveloped and will be noticeably different from the finished product.❀ By commissioning me, you will be granted a sync license to use the completed work in things such as online streams and online media content without copyright claims. However, I retain full rights and ownership to the work, including the right to upload the finished work to my own sites/portfolio (Twitter, SoundCloud, my website, etc.), commercially or non-commercially, for the purpose of showcasing my work.
If you’d prefer for me not to use your name/likeness in my portfolio, please let me know beforehand.
❀ All portfolio showcases will remain anonymous until you have publicly used the work in your content.

Non-Allowed Usage:

❀ Uploading the work for the sole purpose of commercial monetization is not allowed (e.g. audio-only distribution to stores, audio-only monetized uploads, and the like), it must be used alongside your own content if monetized (sync). If you wish to distribute the work to music streaming services (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) please contact me and we can discuss options.~(Example: a YouTube video of you streaming with the work playing in the background + monetization enabled is acceptable, a showcase of the work by itself with monetization enabled is not) if you're unsure about usage, please feel free to ask me.❀ No one else has permission to use your commissioned work, commercially or non-commercially, unless it is in content pertaining to or involving you and/or your brand and they have your direct permission (OK example: interviews).
However, even with your permission, commercial use by a third-party is strictly prohibited before contacting me first.
❀ You may not use the work without credit to me, additionally, you do not have the right to claim the work as your own or someone else's, modify, re-distribute or re-sell it, or auction/“mint” it in any way as a non-fungible token (cryptocurrency) in any blockchain-related technology.❀ If you were to file a fraudulent chargeback at any time, you will lose any and all rights to the commissioned work. I shall be free to exploit any or all portions of the commissioned work as I see fit. (e.g. it will be re-sold/re-purposed)
Additionally, you will be forbidden from commissioning me again, and your name/handles will be shared publicly to protect others.
