(TeamRock) Revenue from music streaming grew in the UK by 49% last year while overall music sales and money raised through live shows fell.

Measuring Music say streaming is "the key to renewed and continued growth for British music and its artists globally."

The report also reflects on YouTube's rate of pay to artists, which has come under fire from various rock groups this year - most notably Sixx AM, Radiohead and Anthrax.
