Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Uh no.....

Songwriters can be very rich, in fact they make more money from music than anybody else.

Basically the gross profits from sales (minus only production, packaging and distribution) are split two ways: 50% go to the writer and 50% to the artist.
Out of his 50% the artist has to pay back the record company advance, studio hire, the producer, musicians, the mix engineer, any promotion and his manager. All this is taken first and the artist gets whats left.

The songwriter pays nothing.
