How Much Do Recording Artists (signed To Major Labels) Make Per Cd?

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I’m writing an article about the current state of the music industry, and I need some definitive facts. Does anyone know how much recording artists make per CD on average (to clarify, recording artists that are signed to one of the major record labels). Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought it was a very very small amount (and that the major labels take the bulk of the revenue). Also, if you supply an answer, I need to see where you got your information (so i can include citations in the article).
Thanks!

    Hello.
    I have some friends in the greater end of the music business (major label artists) and I think I heard it was about $0.11 per CD. But it may differ with others.
    Well I hope this helps in some small way.
