I reactivated an old Distrokid account recently and found that I had earned the princely sum of $0.10 from songs I deleted years ago.

Given I have always paid way more for this on instruments and apps, plugins, etc. I don't think I will be retiring anytime soon.

How much have you earned?

I've made a total of like $60, mainly from goons who are way too nice for their own good, and some random who decided an EP was worth AU$15 (it was free). He was wrong.

a couple grand, all from gigging (never bothered with the streaming apps). also spent a couple grand drinking at said shows, so music remains a $0 endeavor.

From royalties I've made a few grand mainly from pieces being played in concert. From Spotify and the like basically 0$. From commissions and the like I've been lucky enough to make a large part of my earnings there the last 2-3 years. I make a bit from some gigs too. Made a few grand also from production work just recently too, hoping to get more of that work.

That said, music is also my full-time gig!
