Just how many revenue streams are there for musicians? As both the genesis of this project and a framework for the research, FMC compiled a detailed list of the 4245 Revenue Streams available to US-based composers and musicians based on their compositions, sound recordings, performance, brand, or knowledge of craft. Learn how these income streams have evolved over time at Revenue Streams: Existing, Expanded and New, and how we asked questions and grouped Revenue Types in our research.
We have amassed huge amount of qualitative and quantitative data collected through: (1) in-person interviews, (2) a large-scale online survey, and (3) financial case studies that examine the actual income and expenses of working musicians over time. Instead of issuing one enormous report, we have been examining the data through various lenses. Read our Reports and Data Memos, or explore these Financial Case Studies.
