How Quickly Did Top Musicians Make Your Annual Salary in 2017?

In late 2017, Forbes released its annual list of the highest earning musicians for the year. We evaluated their incomes against average professions to see how quickly musicians make typical salaries. Our analysis revealed that stars like Beyonce can make an average person's annual salary in hours, and even minutes.


Hi, I'm Ryan Harrell...

...and I'm the founder of this site. Until a year ago, I was working in the marketing department of a tech company you all have heard of. But my real love had always been music. More importantly, to help people achieve their musical dreams. So I quit my job and started this site to give you the tools, resources, and advice you need to make music your life. 

I aim to be unbiased, accurate, and available. I encourage you to get in touch with me if you need help, spot any errors, or just want to debate whether Daft Punk is the world's greatest musical duo of all time. 

I hope you have a good time here.
