I wonder how many people have access to a cassette player these days?

It's heartening to hear of indie artists hitting it big on their own terms! Still, I'd take issue with the idea that a pro-sounding record can be made on just a laptop ...

The combined might of the independent labels is the biggest player in the US recorded music market – and growing fast.

According to new stats from Nielsen/Billboard, the independents took 35.4% of the US market by ownership (volume) in the first half of 2015.
That was comfortably ahead of Universal (27.6%), Sony (20.9%) and Warner (15.2%), and represented an increase on the 35.1% share the indies claimed across the whole of 2014.

Indie label trade body A2IM has trumpeted the numbers online, calling market share by ownership ‘the only appropriate market share definition’.

This is the metric that re-apportions market share taken by albums which are owned by independent labels but distributed by majors – the most obvious example being Taylor Swift, whose catalogue is owned by Big Machine but distributed by UMG.

Artist's income would be way off to the left of this chart, barring a few superstar exceptions ...
