ArtistShare artist wins a Grammy
Jazz Composer Nabs Grammy After Web-Only Sales. Crazy! Maria Schneider sold 10,000 copies and it cost $87,000 to make the album, which was apparently put up by fans via the ArtistShare service. I hadn't heard about ArtistShare before, it seems to be mostly adult contemporary artists. Interesting phenomenon. For $87,000 I could blow $1,000 on recording and $86,000 on securing myself a Grammy.
