One way to make money making music online is the boring way. Write one song that does incredibly well and live off the royalties for the rest of your life.

Matt Farley is a musician who’s gone a different route. He's written over 14,000 songs and he makes a tiny bit of money each time someone plays one on Spotify or iTunes. PJ visited Matt at his home recording studio to see how it all works.

Thanks for listening. Be sure to check out Matt's music. If you like the show, you can subscribe to us on iTunes. Also, please check out all our previous episodes!

I'm an old man and Matt Farley is the nicest and most interesting young guy I've encountered in a long, long time.

Great story. I'm teaching a class at the local Community College on "How to Write and Market a Song" and will be using this in class. Anyone have any other comments on making money with Spotify, Pandora, etc.?
