The chart's headline seems like it's leading just a bit to me in saying "how little." Granted, most artists aren't making a whole lot off streaming services such as Spotify, but to be fair, Zoe only has her first 2 albums on Spotify. She has another e.p. and a full length that are on all the other services helping boost their respective incomes. And of course, very recently Ron Pope shared some of his stats (http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ron-pope/spotify-independent-artists_b_4803404.html) and he's got a different story to tell. Being a musician, I'm all for making every cent I can to help support my family, but I still have to say that the chart headline seems like it's leading. A big part of it might depend on your fan base, and how they consume music (along with a mail lion other factors, of course).

As a musician with a huge catalog that's available free as Creative Commons, my numbers might be somewhat skewed, but my I'm only pulling in about 5 times my Spotify income with iTunes.

This is absurd.

That chart should read: this is how much Zoe Keating makes from the sale of digital music.

Tthe only thing pathetic is the lack of context and overwhelming amount link baiting on the part of the original posting.

And if this chart were published by an artist in Sweden, where Spotify is 75% of the market, would we talking about how iTunes is ripping artists off in Sweden?

Guile is correct that this totally lacks context, other than that it's clear that we should congratulate Zoe Keating for making over $80K from the digital sales of her music. With what she sells at retail, at shows and on Amazon, that would put her over $100K in income from the sale of her music, more than likely. Add her income from her concerts, and she's almost assuredly doing very well.

She's a good musician and a smart business person, so I hope she gets all the success she deserves.
