Just curious about this. There are producers in all shapes and forms, obviously, and someone like DeadMouse or people in that category obviously earn millions a year, but how much do you reckon those relatively unknown producers earn? Let’s say some of the lesser known names on a label like PAN (who are still quite famous these days). Some are obviously more known than others and will earn quite a bit, but let’s say an an artist that does a bit of touring and has released an album to some acclaim?
I guess it’s hard to come up with a good example, really, but would like to hear some general reflections around this. How much do you reckon your average artist on a label like PAN will bring in a year, for instance? How much do these kind of artists generally get for a gig? And how much do you think they earn on selling their record?
Not really aiming to make a living out of music myself, as I don’t think I’m good enough or original enough of a producer (nor much of a live act), but it’d be interesting to just get a few numbers on how much some these guys might bring in through their music (even though it’s difficult to say exactly).
Anyone got any numbers or reflections around this? Would be interesting to hear.
