Digital Music News reports on a new study by The Future of Music Coalition, who interviewed thousands of bands and artists about the makeup of their teams and found that attorneys and accountants were overwhelmingly the highest-paid members of said teams, outranking label executives, publicists, tour managers and everyone else:
“The Future of Music Coalition recently interviewed thousands of artists about the composition of their team, and this is what a few hundred, high-earning artists said. These are full-time artists making more than $100,000 a year with over 90% of that coming directly from their music. And outside of the band members themselves, these were the roles designated most (in terms of the percentage of respondents indicating that these people were members of their team).”
The graph above breaks down the pay scale of these employees. What do you think? Fair or foul? Let us know in the comments.
