Laura Marling tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2015 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 20) that Marling is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2016 and August 2017, a nearly $20 million lead over her closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The British musician has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Marling Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Eversley Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermarling - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Laura) and a fashion line called “Laura Marling Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Laura fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
