Ohio state representative Kent Smith is promoting the Ohio Sounds tax incentive bill. If passed this bill will reward a 25% return to artists musicians and bands for their music production and recording costs. I have been working in this industry for 17 years and if there is one thing I have never heard during the process of making a record is a musician say, ” I have too much money, this project has been easy to fund!” This will be an incredible benefit to every artist that struggles to fund their project. A 25% refund can make the difference everyone needs to afford all the essentials during and after your recording process. whether it’s finishing your project without cutting corners due to budget restraints or printing of CDs and merch to sell at shows, I see this bill as a very important asset to the local music community and the growth of our economy and Music Industry in Ohio. Please share this info and let’s support this bill.
