I'm rich, I'm rich!

Well, not so much. But I did just the other day, almost two months after the album release, get my first payment from CDBaby. These are the first dollars I’ve ever earned as a musician, so despite the low amount—it represents my cut of the initial two albums sold—I’m actually quite thrilled to have successfully monetized something I love to do. I’m also very grateful to those who’ve made the purchase.

Worth noting for aspiring artists: The gap between sale and payment is a relatively large one. iTunes and Amazon still haven’t reported sales or made payments for July, so if my experience is any guide you shouldn’t put out an album and expect to feed your family off the proceeds the next week.
