See, this hurts the heart. By numbers alone this should allow a musician a comfortable living or at least no day job. I know it takes a bit more chutzpah and creativity to find avenues and outlets to generate an income for a musician these days, but clearly something is wrong with the system. But props to you Starcadian, you’re still at it so while I lament the state of the biz, I’m glad there are talented artists like yourself that still do whatever they can to bring us music.
