My cousin is a singer in Nashville, and she is always talking about how if you want to make a good living in music, you need to keep track of your audience/fans so you can contact them at any time. My family has always been musical so I have sat in on many conversations about this kind of stuff.
Anyway, my cousin is no millionaire, but she makes good enough money to live, have a car etc. so I'd say it's possible if you know what you are doing.
I write my own songs too (although its power metal stuff) but I'm still in school so I donít do it for real yet until after I graduate. I recently typed Ďmake money in musicí into google and found this article that talks about this kind of thing as well Make Money In Music
Hope that helps!
Its funny you mention that link.
Yeah I had a friend who was a member in the music careers program from Tom hess
in that article. He actually quit his regular job to start touring with his
band. I was thinking about checking it out.
