Im just going to say this and then be done.
-An "average" is not the same as a percentage.

According to your info:
-75% of indy artists are making less than $10k a year. On music.
-Is $10k a year in the U.S really "making a living"?
-Like i said before, when you graph it on a chart like what is shown, exponential growth looks great! but, it just means more people are becoming indy artists, not neccesarily doing better. This is where the sense of optimism is coming from I guess. But, its rather misleading. Otherwise the "66% of indy artists surveyed", wouldnt feel like they needed supplemental income to make ends meet.

Or at least thats what I think.
