Re: My Song Was Played 3.1 Million Times on Pandora. My Check Was $39...
entertainers, writers co-writers pay scale's. first thing the time of learning a talent as such, dedication to your craft is what makes you. sitting down or standing up you still have to pay for equipment, travel, copyrights, song pluggers, management, Taxes, and band mate Family's,monthly expences,plus advertisement cost, and still clean up others messes as like millions of Americans do.serving the country we all do thawow i could not resist this one.First off i'm glad your a working Lady,here's my side maybe help you ease the issues performerst to in our own ways, and i'm proud of my two sons in the army,music eases their pain as well as others.and the things you list is why i do what i do in the music buzzyness,useing a creative part of the brain writing a song takes more than you think and a $39 pay check from 3.1 million spins weather it be a song from the 1800's or earlier is property of the creator's and the hours spent to evolve a song from thin air to grade A, Radio play can drain the bank and that is unAirconditioned..lol.cleaning asses and livestock is a few jobs i believe all entertainers musicians, co-writers, have under their belts even eating from trash cans to keep going, still it's a war to servive, I'll be danged if your so self centered you think we don't look into our kids eyes think we don't see our promises to them fade,because of what we copyright, produce, bring to life, cuts us away from our precentages of> the Royalties,fair share of the creator of works,Lord open your eyes child-------------------->>>>
