Music Industry Sales for Independent Artists

For the past 10 years we have heard the doom and gloom about music industry sales decreasing and music piracy increasing. Well for once in the past 10 years I came across these Music Industry Sales Stats and this info is especially inspiring for independent artists.

If you look at these Music Industry Sales Stats, it is quite exciting to see that independent labels are ranked #4 as one of the ‘big four’ top contenders who own the music industry. Numbers are numbers and speculation is speculation but just think.. 10 years ago there was no possible way those numbers could even exist for independent labels and artists..

My Point?

  • Keep Writing inspiring music, do something DIFFERENT, you don’t have time to waste!
  • Only you have your unique talent to express. If you don’t, it is lost forever.
  • Work on your craft, get it professional and let the world listen, NOW!
