'One on Ones'
What type of questions can I ask in my 'One on One'?
To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.
Are there any questions I can’t ask?
At all times we want to make sure our guests feel comfortable in each session. To make sure they aren’t put in an uncomfortable situation, questions in the vein of:
Am I able to ask for feedback on my demos?
This isn't something that YFT is offering as we believe that demo feedback is tied to much more than how the song itself sounds. Making commentary on an artists art requires a much more in deepth conversation than some notes on a demo.
Am I able to ask for legal advice?
Although some of our guests are dealing with contracts and other legal issues on behalf their clients we ask them not to answer any legal questions. We recommend you directing all legal questions to lawyers who can make sure they're across all the information that pertains to your concern.
What fees do YFT charge to book a session?
For facilitating each 'One on One' session, YFT retains 15% of fees that are paid to each industry professional.
What is a YFT Team?
We know there's no clear pathways in the music industry and with more information than ever available as a new and emerging artist it's difficult to know where to turn to for advice and support from a trusted source.
That's why we created Teams.
Teams allows you to connect with artists from across the world to share experiences and to help each other navigate the industry in a completely new way.
As part of teams you get access to:
Hand selected producers who have been vetted by YFT. We negotiate their prices, terms and have these displayed in each teams Circle.
10% discount on any 'One on Ones' with monthly featured guests.
Group sessions with YFT monthly featured guests
Monthly YFT Newsletter with interviews from our guests.
25% discount on all YFT events (featured interviews, monthly interviews, presented shows)
The ability to have your live shows presented by YFT (Conditions apply)
How are the YFT Teams put together?
We interview each artists before they're placed into a team to make sure we're building a positive enviroment for each artist.
We want to make sure everyone artist who is involved is here for the right reasons and willing to contribute to group discussions in a postive way.
How regularly do each of the teams meet?
We don't set any requirements, we very much leave the running of each team up to the invididuals.
What has worked with our teams so far is:
What do you talk about in teams?
Anything and everything. We have artists ask about:-
How to write a release plan
Grant writing advice
Show planning and potential support opportunities
Artists releases they want remixed
How much they should be charged for a single vs an EP
Tips on TikTok and socials
Building your team
Why would I need to build a team?
As artists project grow they usually have managers, booking agents, publicists and many other services reach out to support them. For many new and emerging artists this is something for them to aspire to but we realise that many industry actually want to be assisting emerging artists it just very much comes down to how much time they have.
We have strong exisiting relationships with music industry experts from around the world and are working on ways to share their knowledge to make the music industry that much stronger.
Who can I put on my team?
