You are failing to realize that the ball is in the recording industry's park, and the potential artist has no other real options.

How about get a day job? You make it sound like artists are homeless and destitute. Perhaps they are, as the saying goes, 'starving' but there is always another job out there. It may not be as glamorous as a record deal but there is still a choice to be made.
