  1. A Featured Performer / Artist is an individual Performing Artist in whose name the CD is recorded, or a member of a band who has made a performing contribution to the recorded performance.
  2. A Non-Featured Performer / Artist is a Performing Artist who has been engaged for a fixed period of time, customarily known in the industry as a session musician, specifically to make one or more recorded backing performances which subsequently are included in the sound recording. This includes a Studio Producer who has made a performing contribution whether audible (e.g. play an instrument/sing) or inaudible (conduct or musically direct the live performance as it is being recorded) to the recorded performance.
  3. The term 'Other Featured Performer / Artist' is used only in exceptional circumstances, where a performer's contribution that would otherwise fall within the Non-Featured Performer merits Featured status. Participants who may fall into this category are limited to:
    • A Lead Vocalist or instrumentalist not exclusively contracted to the commissioning record label or whose professional name appears with or is linked to the name of the Contracted Artists credited with making the recording; and
    • A performer who is entitled under the terms of a contract with the Contracted Artist to receive royalties from sales of the recording.
