February 25, 2013: Radio Free Culture #10: Understanding Artist Revenue Streams
How are today's musicians earning money? Thanks to the Future of Music Coalition's pioneering Artist Revenue Streams project, we finally have some real answers to this complex question. Through interviews, case studies, and a methodological survey of over 5000 musicians, the study identified 25 different types of musicians and 42 unique revenue streams. As the data analysis unfolds, ARS is already busting myths, informing artist advocacy, and likely to shape policy for years to come. Host Jason Sigal will be joined by the project's co-director Jean Cook, as well as fellow musicians Rebecca Gates and Greg Fox. Framing paper by Kristin Thomson.
