I recently let go of a band member who wasn't working out. Our record has not yet released, and was crowd-funded (which was set up solely in my name). The band as a business is a sole proprietorship in my name, and all taxes are filed and paid through that. Our business bank account is under my name for my SP. He is not a "founding member". Also, all band bills (insurance, van payments, etc) are in my name and paid through my SP business account. I am the sole writer on all songs. We've never signed a band agreement (foolish, I know), and no one was paid for performance. I paid a small amount as a sort of "severance" but never officially called it that. He has no fiscal investment in the band.
He's considering legal counsel to prevent the record release with his performance. Thoughts?
