How we contract and pay our musicians.
musiversal is a global company and hires musicians from all around the globe, and we are committed to creating a music industry that works for everyone. We are creating stable jobs, part-time and full-time, for musicians in an industry where stable jobs rarely exist.
We look for talent and believe that whether a musician lives in a major music city like London, Nashville or a remote location like the Patagonia Forest, the only thing that matters is how good of a musician she/he is.
musiversal pays fairly to every musician around the world, adjusting the salary paid to the local cost of living in order to ensure that every musician is able to enjoy the same comfortable standard of living, regardless of location.
Example: In New York City one will need more money to have the same standard of living than in Warsaw, Poland. As a global company, being fair means ensuring everyone gets similar quality of life for similar jobs. Salaries range from $12,000 to $48,000 full time globally, depending on location and local cost of living.
We pride ourselves on paying above and beyond union rates as well as above the average salary of the musicians' countries of residence. Because our musicians are employed on a part-time or full-time basis, it means that they can focus on what they do best: playing and recording music for you. That means they don't spend time doing things like marketing or even commuting, and it's also the reason why we can charge just $99/$199 for the musiversal subscription!
