There are some musicians who prefer to use the services of specialized songwriters. These musicians opt to have the specialized songwriters write songs for them. Under this system, the role of the musicians is simply to perform the songs. But the role of writing the songs is left to people who specialize in that.
The services of the best songwriters are actually very widely sought. This is how you end up with some songwriters opting to set up companies, through which they can ply their trade. It is not hard to imagine a songwriter trying to set up a Sunbiz Corporation, with the intention of using the corporation to run his songwriting business. The corporation in question ends up being a normal business venture, like any other: having to file the Sunbiz annual report and undertake other such tasks.
There are people who feel that using the services of specialized songwriters constitutes a fraudulent activity. This is because the songs end up being credited to the ‘musicians’ who perform them: in spite of the fact that the songs were actually written by the specialized songwriters.
But on the other side of the divide, we also have people who feel that using the services of specialized songwriters leads to production of higher quality music. These are typically the people who hold the view that using the services of specialized songwriters is one of the ways in which we can enhance efficiency and thus make more money out of music in the modern age. This school of thought believes in the ‘division of labor’ and ‘specialization’ within the music industry. The people who subscribe to this way of thinking appreciate one important thing: that the folks who are good at performing music may not always be good at writing music. And conversely, the people who are good at writing music may not always be good at performing the music. Thus, it makes sense for one to do what he is good at.
