Congratulations to Monika and the girls! Last week Monika received her first check from cdbaby.com for the album her and the rest of the Merrye Madrygal Mavyns put together last year.
The great thing about the check is not the amount of money on it but what it represents. These weren't sales to friends or family of a CD put together in our living room. No, these were sales of CDs and digital downloads to people who've never heard of the group. People from as far as Japan and Australia were buying the songs!
So, I was amazed and proud of her.
She can now say, even though she isn't making a living from it, that she is a professionally paid musician.
And that's never a bad thing.
