How much did you make from music last year

Not counting your day job, how much did you make from music last year and how much did you spend on gear, advertising, touring, yada yada.

What was your net music only income last year?

I made under $10,000 last year from music. Thankful to have made some money, but depressed considering all of the music I have sitting in music libraries.

I am angry at these “publishers”!

So overall are you ahead or have you spent more than you made.

What do you figure you made or it_cost_you per hour so far?

I don’t measure any of that. I buy a few things when I get my royalty checks and keep on creating. The money spent isn’t the issue. The money I am not earning and the time spent making the songs is what bugs me.

I hate signing songs that don’t get placed. I also hate signing songs that generate low royalty payouts. But I have resigned from my PRO. I know for sure that I am being underpaid and also not being paid for placements on TV shows. Those placements add up over time!
