You guys are posting this as if it were some mainstream performer, who is down on their luck because of internet music streaming. Hey, I'm sorry you aren't making Yo-Yo Ma money; but no other cellist is, either. Most cellists work to perform in an orchestra for money, or play for the art. If you wanted to make money in music, you are playing the WRONG instrument.
Seriously, why is it even an issue? She's lucky to be getting that many people even listening to her, or getting paid that much. Yo Yo Ma makes his money in performances. The music industry is, in a way, going backwards. You have a few studio chimps and "lucky ones" who will sell a bunch of albums. Most others, if they want to make money, will do it old school...on the road. Led Zeppelin got their own plane from their tour earnings, not from album sales; though those were big, as well. Most bands in the alt-indie circuit earned through regional venue appearances. In Asheville we have plenty of groups who make their fill touring regionally. Yes, they aren't making coke and limousine money; but it's ridiculous to think you can.
Music performers seem to forget: they are artists and entertainers. Their job isn't a 9-5'er, where they are owed a steady paycheck. Sorry, honey, but the onus of earning money is on YOU. You have a web site. You have a contract with Pandora and Spotify better than any you would get with radio(good luck getting a station to play an "avant-gard cellist", lol). Quit the crying and work on that server job at TGIFriday's, or get out there performing; but don't go crying about how hard it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzK5dmZHqr0
