How many songs are written / recorded every week? In the US alone - how many. Thousands ----- It is pretty easy to see that the odds are not very favorable. I enjoy listening to new artists and songs on Amazon Prime Music ---- So many each week and some are pretty good. Few will ever get much attention.

Justice has had over two million plays of her songs on streaming services - which sounds pretty good, but only to someone who does not know much about the music industry. At least it is something that she enjoys knowing and we do get a small check every few months from CDBaby for the streams (note O think that CD Baby does not sell CD's anymore).

All in all though, doing some music production in a very small way, still provides satisfaction but certainly no meaningful money. It is nice to see that some like a couple posters in this thread are successful ------ It is all relative.
