    daveydad thanks for posting! Impressive!

    When you stream your music on Spotify etc.. is it vocal tracks or instrumentals? I do mostly instrumentals, didn’t think there would be much interest in it?

    Thanks

    Everything on Spotify is instrumental. I have 14 albums on there…. mostly piano based but also some ambient/electronic and cinematic stuff. Pandora is where I make the most…. so far.

    Here’s what things are looking like for me with regard to back-end earnings:

    2013: $0 (wrote 16 tracks; all NEx)
    2014: $0 (wrote 21 tracks; 13 NEx, 8 Excl)
    2015: $25.59 (wrote 87 tracks; 83 Excl, 4 NEx)
    2016: $1467.45 (wrote 52 tracks; all Excl)
    2017: $6091.87 (wrote 73 tracks: 72 Excl, 1 NEx)

    I have had some sync fees and upfront payments along the way, earned through exclusive and non-exclusive tracks. That looks like this:

    2013: $750
    2014: $0
    2015: $2254.15
    2016: $470.05
    2017: $512.70

    Not sure how many tracks I actually have being used… I’m guessing 200 or more. Have at least 100 tracks in exclusive libraries, the rest are non-ex.

    Pandora pays according to the listener’s subscription plan. It’s still just tenths of a penny like Spotify but I have more streams a month with them. You can do a Google search for album submissions. I make $60-$100/month from Pandora. My best month was $300.

    pike60, is your catalog in mostly mid tier exclusive libs with no upfronts? or PMA libs? thanks for sharing your journey… i saw a [removed] interview of one of their top composers where he states he had an exponential jump on income about 3 years in when he started focusing on non ex libs…interesting you brought that up

    boinkeee2000, I think you hit the nail on the head. Yes, mid tier libraries with no upfront. Yes, I think its time to get into non-ex libraries while I still can. RF is a nice alternative too.
