Indie Artists And Their Net Worth

Posted at July 24th, 2015 | by Kamakshi Bhat | in

Indie Artists are called ‘Indie’ because they are Independent, they do not associate themselves with any record label. And while this particular trait makes them ‘edgy’ and ‘cooler’ than other mainstream band or artists, it also makes it hard for them to earn money. Or so they say.

 

All of the major indie bands or artists are now getting signed to record labels, which means more money for their music even though in the process the ‘Indie’ genre is losing it’s real charm. But I don’t think I blame them for earning money..Why will I ? I make money using their name.

 

So here are a few “Indie” artists who are doing pretty good by themselves.

 

1. Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys are worth a whooping 5 Million US Dollars. Yes, you heard it right ladies. Actually, they make up to sixty one thousand dollars in a month. If only our life was that easy, eh?
 

2. Florence And The Machine

Florence And The Machine are worth 15 Million Dollars! Now I know what the ‘Machine’ means. They are a machine…for making MONEY! What else!
 
3. Foster The People

Foster The People net worth is six million dollars, quite a lot if you think that only one of their song was a super hit in the charts. I bet they’re pumped up about the millions in their bank though (Always pun intended).

 

4. The 1975

The 1975 have their net worth listed as 1 Million Dollars and this one album old but promising band is on it’s way to add loads of zeroes in front of it, no doubt.
 

5. Lorde

Lorde net worth is 2 million dollars and in case you didn’t know she is 18 YEARS OLD AND JUST ONE ALBUM OLD WITH LOADS OF GRAMMY’s. Oh I think she is doing just fine.

 

6. The Fray

The Fray’s net worth is 11 million dollars and for a popular band as this, it’s not much, so they might be taking their “Indie” tag a bit seriously than the others. Good for them.

 

7. Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend’s net worth is 20 million dollars. What do you do with that kind of money, WHAT?

 

8. Marina And The Diamonds

Marina And The Diamonds is 3 million dollars richer than you if you’re bank balance is zero. In any case, that is still more than probably I’ll ever have.

 

9. Tegan and Sara

Tegan and Sara, the duo’s net worth is $2.6 Million. Not doing bad ladies. Keep the good work up.

 

10. Bastille

 

bastille-650-430

 

Bastille net worth is $30 Million. Okay, this is a new band. Who gave them so much money? But we don’t mind because their music is simply divine.

 

So, If you ever happen to worship the ground these ‘Indie’ artists walk on for not caring about money at all, take a second guess. And no I don’t hate Indie. I actually happen to breathe Indie.
