Minnesota Musicians Survey 2013

Assumptions about the lives of musicians in Minnesota run rampant. Gimme Noise regularly hears that local performers are better suited to make a living here than in any other major city, but also many tales of ramen noodles, couch-surfing, and no health insurance. Which scenario is true? Well, probably both.
In any case, with tax season coming up, we thought it'd be a great time to launch the inaugural Minnesota Musicians Survey. Spurred by a recent Star Tribune article citing data from a 2005 study of all types of Minnesota artists, we thought we'd reach out and add some categories more in tune with musicians. Within, you can anonymously (or leave your name/band, if you wish) contribute to what we hope will be a series of reports on the real financial picture for local musicians.
