The earnings brought in by music artists vary drastically and the music business presents myriad obstacles and intricacies. Some musicians enjoy huge earnings, while others make relatively little. Artists, as well as their representatives, that achieve superstar status and global recognition often boast millions of dollars in revenue, while unknown acts playing small clubs and bars hardly make any money at all. Of course, a middle ground also exists for touring musicians that have amassed a loyal fan base but have yet to break into the mainstream.
Music industry careers are often gigs or freelance and entrepreneurial opportunities as opposed to full-time positions. Many music industry professionals either create their own businesses or must have a diverse portfolio of skills related to the industry in order to obtain many different part-time gigs that will equal a full-time career. This is true for seasoned professional musicians and music industry professionals, not just those new to the field.
