I recently interviewed musician Matt Farley about how his catalog of over 18,000 songs generates revenue of two thousand dollars a month from sites like Spotify and Itunes.
Matt writes about a wide array of topics like office supplies, poop, pee, celebrities and pretty much everything else you can think of. He's incredibly prolific, sometimes cranking out as many as 100 songs a day. Instead of spending weeks and months recording his masterpiece that may or may not ever be heard by the public, Matt is going for volume, writing and recording an insane amount of music, hoping that each track will earn him a dollar or two.
It's an interesting approach, that's yielding some interesting results.
Check out my interview with Matt and let me know what you think of his approach to recording and marketing his music in the comments.
