There isn’t much for me to say, that this lovely animated picture didn’t already say for me.
What we have here is an artist who released music on Warner Bros (a Major Label). He has posted a recent statement which included his first figures for the online sales of his band’s record(s). It shows that he earned $62, and that he owes just over THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.
The twist that I find particularly wonderful is that he now works for online music retailer Rhapsody, so there’s no doubt he understands how the labels are getting paid, and where the funds are going. It’s a very interesting perspective for him to post from both sides here.
I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did!
