Contracts For Atlanta Union Musicians

I was a member of the Atlanta Federation of Musicians for a few years and found their contracts to be very helpful when booking jobs.  In my personal experience, Atlanta really isn’t a big union town when it comes to hiring contract musicians, but I could always negotiate the use of the AFM contracts if I wanted my employer to contribute towards my pension.  The following contracts can be found at atlantamusicians.com/contracts-agreements.

Using FTP To Send Music Files

Being a DIY musician has been a huge learning experience for me.  I had to learn a new skill the other day when I needed to FTP an mp3 file to an internet radio station.  I decided to write a blog entry about it since I’m sure that others can benefit from this information.

After doing some digging on the internet and in my web hosting company’s FAQ section, I came across a free FTP utility program called CyberDuck that has software versions for both Mac and Windows operating systems.  What I really like about CyberDuck is that you can still transfer files from your local hard drive without needing to connect to a server hosting your web files.

Step 1:  Connect to the destination location where you want to FTP your file.
– Click on the ‘Open Connection’ icon on the top left (greyed out in the image below).
– Enter the ‘Server’, ‘Port’, ‘Username’ and ‘Password’ information provided by the company where you’re trying to send your files.
– Click on the ‘Connect’ button once you’ve entered all of the destination location information.

Step #1 Screenshot

Step 2:  Navigate to the ‘Upload’ menu option.
– Click on the ‘Action’ icon.
– Navigate to and then click on the ‘Upload…’ menu option.

Step #2 Screenshot

Step 3:  Select the files from your hard drive source location.
– Navigate to the directory where the file you want to send is located and select it.
– Click on the ‘Upload’ button to start the file transfer process.
