Brian Eno tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2020 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (August 7) that Eno is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between July 2021 and July 2022, a nearly $40 million lead over his 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-singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Eno Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Woodbridge Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondereno - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Brian) and a fashion line called “Brian Eno Seduction”.

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