Re: Need some information - making money from your music (as an independent artist)?
this funny thing happens to really good artists who give their music away: people give them money anyways, because they enjoy it and they want to see the artist continue to live and work.
Also yes the real profit is in doing live shows, which are hard work. also from selling your services, IE doing film or video game sound and music.
If you make music your life, and are willing to sacrifice other things to make it work, yes it's very possible.
