The truth of 'who gets which slice of pie' within the stakeholders of the music supply chain will one day become public knowledge - it may surprise some ...

$6,400 to $114 ... mmm ...

So she got a bad deal with a publisher or label? How's Spotify or Pandoras fault?

Christopher Bright

I'm guessing the $114 is just her songwriter's royalty cut?

we would love someone to inform us - so we can make informed decisions on how to listen and buy.
How could it be changed?

Is there not some sort of writers union or advice centre?

Does agents/managers do this for you or no? These questions put me off before pursuing music career when I was young.

What everyone else is thinking

That's not the point. The point is the same amount of plays on terrestrial radio with the same royalty and publishing deal would make a lot of money. Believe it or not the shitty deal she has with her label/publishing was still enough to make a living before. That's the point.

70 to label 30 to the streamers
