As mentioned, streaming is having a really big influence on the music industry… and according to my musician friends, not in a good way…
From the rather excellent “Information Is Beautiful” website comes the infographic posted below. In essence, it shows how much (though perhaps ‘little’ would be more accurate) a musician makes from his or her music depending on how we access it. Yes, Spotify and the other streaming services are great for us as listeners… but don’t expect to make a living out of being a musician if you are relying on it to pay your bills.
Any thoughts about this welcomed as comments! 😉
PS: If you are researching a topic for any of your other subjects, it’s worth seeing if “Information Is Beautiful“ can help you with graphics… it’s a brilliant example of how the web can be better than traditional sources. #justsayin’
